Scott notes that Sc2b was not issued and that Sc2 imperf is a proof.
Mackay  states that, “Unlike the majority of Perkins Bacon contracts of this period, those relating to Grenada were never surrendered to De La Rue, though the latter company typographed the stamps of Grenada from 1993 onwards.”

Changes of Administration
Grenada gained independence in 1974.
Grenada Grenadines comprises the islands of Carriacou and Ronde: Gibbons also mentions Petite Martinique. From 1999 (Sc2117, SG2779, another royal wedding), stamps were inscribed "Grenada Carriacou and Petite Martinique". These stamps are produced for sale to thematicists, not for those wishing to post letters.
