Nigeria - Issues of Lagos (1874-1906)

Nigeria - Issues of Lagos (1874-1906)

Single stamps, covers, and multiples issued by the Crown Colony of Lagos from 1874 up to its amalgamation with Southern Nigeria in 1906. This is an extremely promising and challenging area in which to specialize, especially for the first issues of 1874-1879. It is ideal for collectors who like studying different printings, as there were as many as 50 printings of some stamps. Postal history offers a major challenge, as most of it is rare.
