BACKGROUNDER

British Caribbean Territories was a currency union established in 1950 with its name later changed to the East Caribbean States.  Various schemes were used to identify places of issue as below.

1965

1985-87

1993

Anguilla U
Antigua A
Dominica D
Grenada G
Montserrat M
St. Kitts K
St. Lucia L
St. Vincent V
Anguilla U
Antigua A
Dominica D
Grenada G
Montserrat M
St. Kitts K
St. Lucia L
St. Vincent V
Antigua A
Dominica D
Grenada G
St. Kitts K
St. Lucia L
Montserrat M
Anguilla U
St. Vincent V
 

The L.1965 issues used an overprint letter in a circle to identify the area of issue.

These same identifiers were used in the 1985-87 issues as a serial number suffix.

The 1993 issues used a bar code scheme (as above) to identify areas of issue.
