The Seychelles Archipelago
Consisting of 115 islands settled in 1770 by French Mauritians and Réunionnais, becoming a British colony following the annexation of Mauritius in 1810. Gaining independence in 1976. 

Between 1861 and 1890 Mauritius postage stamps were used cancelled B64. 

In 1890 named colony keyplates were issued. The Victorian locally printed surcharge errors are numerous, as are the Edwardian keyplate errors. The maritime element forms an interesting section in any postal history collection. The postage stamps since independence depict the unique flora and fauna of the whole group of islands.
