Isle of Man First Day Covers

From PhantomWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

These are my First Day Covers from the Isle of Man... Notes:

  1. While the majority of these covers are official FDCs from the Isle of Man Post Office, some of them may be First Day Covers issued by other organisations. These are indicated as such in the notes.
  2. In "Notes", quotations (generally from 2014 onwards) are from the Isle of Man Post Office website (here) or from their newsletter and any copyright is owned by them;
  3. Details of stamps are from the Stanley Gibbons catalogue or from the information card inside the FDC.
  4. Where a rear cover is indicated as N/A, this shows that the rear of the envelope was blank
  5. N/A for information cards show that none were issued (or none were present in the example I have in my possession)



British Post Office Issues

In 1767 His Majesty's Postmaster General established a Post Office in the Isle of Man and introduced a mails service to and from the Island. At first Douglas was merely a Sub Office but it rose to Head Post Office status in 1822. Administration of postal services remained under the control of the British Post Office (now Royal Mail) and up to postal independence the stamps used in the Island's Post Offices were known as regionals - featuring a small portrait of Her Majesty the Queen and a three legs symbol to signify the Isle of Man. Similar stamp designs were used in Wales and Scotland to signify national identity.[1]

"We feature each of the Isle of Man's 17 local parish churches in our set of 1st class stamps for Isle of Man and UK postage. The island's early ecclesiastical history is something of a mystery and, although historians and scholars think it may have been possible that parishes were organised at an earlier date, the establishment of such a system by our Scandinavian ancestors was set up later in the twelfth century."
