About Colonial Stamp

The British colonial postal system created an enduring legacy. Britain's former colonies, such as the United States, Canada, Australia, South Africa, and India, borrowed many ideas from Britain's original postal service. Indeed, the very concepts of the ''self-adhesive stamp'' and the ''universal stamp'' originated in Britain during the 1830s.Let's examine one of Britain's colonial postal systems in greater detail. At the opening of the 20th century, Britain controlled a territory called Somaliland. Since there was no major postal structure in place in Somaliland, British officials at first mailed with stamps from other parts of the empire. This proved remarkably inconvenient. The next year, British Somaliland began producing its own stamps.The first issue, entitled ''Somaliland Protectorate,'' featured, unsurprisingly, the British monarch King Edward VII. Upon the ascension of the English King George VI a few years later, Somaliland issued a series of commemorative stamps in the new monarch's honor. Other stamps honored local Somaliland fauna, famously depicting both a running antelope and a special sheep called the Berbera Blackhead Sheep.Between October 1949 and June 1960 (when Somaliland finally became an independent nation), the British issued a series of curious Somaliland stamps. The currency charges for these stamps varied wildly. One year, stamps cost rupees and annas. The next year, they cost dollars and cents. In retrospect, the British didn't really have great control over the Somaliland postal system. That said, towards the end of the British reign, Queen Elizabeth II did release a few exciting stamps honoring Somaliland wildlife.
