Below, you will find links to scans showing all the different printings and shades of all Falkland Islands stamps from Queen Victoria to early Queen Elizabeth II issues. All numbers and descriptions refer to the Specialised Stamp Catalogue of the Falkland Islands and Dependencies, fifth edition, published in 2006.
The scanned colours will never be 100% accurate so one should look more at the difference between different shades and printings rather than the actual colours. The calibration of your screen will also affect how the colours look. The examples shown on the scans have been chosen as typical examples of each printing and shade. One has to remember that each printing will have contained a range of shades as well as examples of different intensity. Age, toning, water and chemicals can also affect the colour of a stamp and stamps which have been affected by any of these factors are normally difficult to identify.
But hopefully this colour guide will be of some help to those trying to identify their stamps. If you find the stamps to be too large on your screen, you can save the pages as separate PDF-files in your computer and then make them as small as you prefer. If you do this, you should save them in the reduced size of 50% of original size, otherwise you may lose the right hand parts of the images.
