Saint Lucia[edit | edit source]

  • Saint Lucia was a British dependency until it obtained autonomy in 1967, the date the postage meters were first used. The country gained full independence in 1979.
  • All franks contain “ST. (or St.) LUCIA”.
  • Although no catalog values are provided (due to lack of information), meter stamps of Saint Lucia appear to be quite scarce.
