Great Britain declared ‘British Central Africa’ a protectorate in 1891 and started to issue postage stamps. In 1908, the Protectorate was renamed ‘Nyasaland’, and in 1953 it joined the postal territory of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. Stamps were issued from Nyasaland again In 1963 when it became an autonomous area, followed by Independence (as ‘Malaŵi’) on 6 July 1964.
The stamps from the King George V reign are particularly interesting to collectors with a wide range of constant plate flaws to collect.
