Jamaica 1987

From 3rd January 1958 Jamaica was part of The British Caribbean Federation, but from 6th August 1962 it has been an independent state within the British Commonwealth.   The head of state is the British Monarch, represented by a governor-general.  

Please note that in spite of their different design all the below stamps belong to the same set. All stamps are lithographed reproductions of original engravings by Slania.

The values 1c - 90c, that include both the Manley-set and the Bustamante-set, were all designed by Slania, and litho printed by Enschedé. Since they are not engraved (recess-printed) stamps, it is a matter of taste whether they should be listed as Slania's works.  Given the fact that Slania has signed the 55 c stamp in the selvedge, I have chosen to do so.

Norman Manley (1893-1969), former Prime Minister of Jamaica.
