Kenya Uganda Tanganyika-1954-A Queen Elizabeth the 2nd 1 Pound (black and red) Postage Stamp-Illustrated

Shown below is the 1 Pound stamp issued for Kenya Uganda Tanganyika in 1954 during the reign of Queen Elizabeth the Second. The 1 Pound stamp was the highest value in a set with values from 5 Cents to 1 Pound. This is among the last set of stamps (only two more issues showed the reigning British monarch on stamps for this region) with a portrait of Elizabeth the Second illustrated on them.
In 1963 Kenya Uganda and Tanganyika became independent countries and thereafter Republics.
