KENYA UGANDA TANGANYIKA 1938 KGVI BLOCK
Beautiful show room piece.
The first stamps marked Kenya, Uganda and Tanganyika were issued in 1935, in the form of common designcommemoratives for the Silver Jubilee of King George V as well as a definitive series featuring a profile of the king and local scenes. They replaced stamps marked "Kenya and Uganda" and "East Africa and Uganda Protectorates". The definitives included a dramatic departure from the usual engraved stamps of the period; the 10c and £1 stamp were typographed and had a silhouette of a lion, with color combinations of black/yellow and black/red, respectively.**
The same designs were reissued in 1938 with a profile of George VI. Wartime exigencies forced the use of surchargeson four South African stamps in 1941 and 1942, but after the war the usual common types (Peace Issue, Silver Wedding Issue, etc.) resumed.
