Yes, I have a few of those Barbados ones, too, and I think their subtle colours are absolutely wonderful! The ones most seahorse (and British!) collectors want to get, but they are very expensive, are some that look very like the Barbados ones but are twice as wide. I have one stamp that I originally thought was one of those, (and I got all excited!) but then realized that it is a "stamp-on-stamp" only showing one of those expensive ones!
I just realized that, although I started this thread, I was having a lot of trouble posting photos. I seem to have resolved part of that problem now, so I will use the next few postings to show you what I`ve collected in seahorses. Dorincard, I just love your Romanian maximum (post)card so much that I copied it and will look for a copy for my own! I don`t care if it`s a maximum card or not! Here is a picture of my "stamp-on-stamp" British "Horses in the sea" stamp. Just click on the photo to make it bigger!
And here are my George V Barbados seahorse stamps. There are better photos of the stamps` details above, but this shows off their lovely subtle colours, which I appreciate so much. The notation at the top, which is a little fuzzy, and hard on the eyes, says, "When I Googled "Seahorses on Stamps" the first time, horses that happened to be in the sea came up!"
