BARBADOS COVERS FRANKED WITH PERKINS BACON ADHESIVES (Updated June 2021)

The original idea of recording as many covers as came on to the market must go to Michael Hamilton; his listing of philatelic events and covers posted at the time is a goldmine!
The next plaudit must go to Fitz Roett; from his lair in deepest Alberta, he has over the years amassed a fine collection of items from the island of Barbados. In 2013, he collaborated with that fine philatelist, the late Charles Freeland FRPSL and Peter Longmuir to prouce a book entitled ‘BARBADOS –The Britannia Issues’.
The list that follows emanates mainly from these two sources. Other collectors have contributed as well and I list their names in alphabetical order: Graham Booth FRPSL, Jonathan Guy, Joseph Hackmey RDP FRPSL, Christopher Harman RDP Hon FRPSL, Stefan Heijtz FRPSL, Michael Medlicott FRPSL, Mike Rego, Simon Richards FRPSL, Ray Stanton, Richard Stupples and Takashi Yoshida FRPSL; all of these collectors have fine collections of Barbados covers.
Acknowledgement must also go to dealers and auction houses who have generously supplied me with high resolution scans of covers in their keep. These have been noted beneath the illustrations.
As with all these lists, it is a work in progress and we do not expect that we have listed all covers; others will no doubt exist and we would hope that collectors seeing this list will add to it with items we have failed to record.

Clearly, the numerals were intended solely to ‘obliterate’ the adhesive to deter re-use of the stamps, while the other canceller was meant to record the date. Indeed, this practice was a resounding success, for there appears to be no record of any Britannia stamp being cancelled by any of the E1 or M1 instruments.
In May 1863, the original cancellation devices were superseded by new instruments, which Clarke et al. designated C2 (the so-called “bootheels”), E2 (GPO) and M2 (parishes). Once again, the practice of the obliterators cancelling the adhesives and the other instruments to record the date was a success. However, a few stamps have been recorded cancelled with the M2 devices, and one cover is known, used from St. Lucy.
