A number of these issues perforated, imperforate proofs came onto the market after the liquidation of the Format International Security Printers Ltd. in 1988. There are some varieties that are legitimately rare. Also full uncut press sheets of some issues have a rarity factor. More detail will be presented on these in another section of the study.

These were the last stamps printed by the Format International Security Printers Ltd. for Barbados. The company soon after went into bankruptcy.
