NEVIS LEADERS OF THE WORLD 6TH SERIES 1986 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 high values that exist for the Nevis 6th trains series in the 6-stage variety.
At present there is no evidence that 7-stage sets exist for these four high values of the 6th series.

The quantities that exist for the 6-stage Nevis 1986 Leaders of the World 6th series locomotives high values 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.
