St Vincent-1921-32-A George the 5th Definitive Postage Stamp set to 1 Shilling-Illustrated

Shown below is the George the 5th definitive set to 1 Shilling issued for the island of St Vincent between 1921 and 1932. The set was originally issued between 1921 and 1922 with the values of a Halfpenny (green), 1 Penny (carmine), 2 Pence (grey), 3 Pence (bright blue), 5 Pence (sage-green), and 1 Shilling (bistre-brown). In subsequent years other values were added, the last being the 1 Penny Halfpenny (brown) in 1932. The 1 Shilling value was issued twice, the second issue in ochre in 1927 (this is the issue shown here). Higher values of 2 Shillings. 5 Shillings and 1 Pound were added in the mid to late 1920's. Many values in the set are more highly valued lightly postally used than mint.
