2001. 🇰🇾 Delayed Cayman Islands Issues Released At Last.


🇰🇾 The postal service of Cayman Islands issued 3 sets of stamps locally, probably on 16 December 2021, which had been delayed arriving in the territory. A post office spokesman said that for reasons beyond the Cayman Islands Post Office control the stamps were late in arriving in the islands and they were not in the islands in time for the planned dates of issue. Even then only one of the prepared first day covers had arrived in the island (the Duke of Edinburgh issue) and the two others were still awaited. The issues are:-

Planned date of issue - 10 November 2021 - 95th Birthday of Queen Elizabeth II - 4 stamps and 1 miniature sheet. An attractive issue. Rating:- *****.

Planned date of issue:- 22 October 2021 - Commemoration of the late Duke Of Edinburgh - 4 stamps and 1 miniature sheet. Rating:- ****.

2021 - Christmas - 4 stamps. The designs take the form of stamps on stamps and use the designs of a previous issue. Rating:- ***.

  As the year draws to a close here is a list of those Commonwealth philatelic entities which are not yet known during 2021 to have issued, or have had issued on their behalf, legal items which are intended to be or are purporting to be, postage stamps:- 

Rarotonga Cook Islands
St Kitts
Saint Lucia 
Sierra Leone 
Solomon Islands 
Turks And Caicos Islands 

Nineteen in all.

And that would seem to be that.
