Stamp Investment Tip: Antigua 1932 Tercentenary (Scott #67-76)

In 1932, Antigua issued a handsome set of of ten stamps commemorating its Tercentenary (Scott #67-76). 23,640 sets were issued, and Scott '13 prices the unused set at $234.50 ($550.- for NH).

The set has multiple market appeal among collectors of British Commonwealth, British Caribbean, and Ship Topicals.

A small island nation with about 85,000 inhabitants, Antigua is mainly reliant on tourism, and it markets itself as a luxury Caribbean escape. Annual GDP growth has been flat over the past 5 years, due to the effect of the global financial crisis.
