NEVIS LEADERS OF THE WORLD 1ST SERIES 1983 LOCOMOTIVES 6-STAGE PROGRESSIVE COLOR PROOF STAMPS

For the majority of earlier Nevis LOW Trains and Cars stamp series the original color proofs that were saved came from press sheets. Very few of them were retained and thus the sets that were created from them are quite rare. For the 5-stage sets that exist they are easily proven to come from the press sheets because the older method of the combined yellow and black proofs is all the evidence you need.
The 6-stage sets are a bit more difficult because of their similarity to 7-stage sets in that they are only missing the all colors stage. The only way to define them then is if they have the very large selvage or, where the 7-stage sets exist, a comparison of the two versions can be made for the differences in color.

You can view on this page the four values that exist for the Nevis 1st trains series in the 6-stage variety.

It is interesting to note that the four 5-stage stamps were all printed on the same press sheet as shown by the last two digits of the sheet number which are 5A through 5D.
These four stamps of the series were printed on a different press sheet and I note the change in format of the last two digits being a space between the number and the letter like this: 2 A through 2 D.
Evidence of the change to a 6-stage form as these four values are only found that way or in 7-stage form. I have seen none of them in 5-stage form.

The quantities that exist for the 6-stage Nevis 1983 Leaders of the World 1st series locomotives is unknown. Due to the low availability on the market and the fact that they were cut from press sheets of which very few were saved, the 6-stage sets can be classified as extremely rare.
