A Jersey 2½d regional issue of 1964, design by Edmund Blampied.

The first postage stamps marked Jersey were issued during the occupation of the island by the Germans during World War II.[1]

Later, Jersey used British regional stamps marked specifically for use in Jersey but valid for postage throughout the United Kingdom.[1]

Jersey has issued its own stamps since 1 October 1969.[1]
