St. Lucia was one of the few colonies to give its custom to Perkins Bacon rather than De La Rue. Mackay  notes that the printer "thriftily .. used one plate for the production of all three denominations required ... the values being indicated by the different colours used - red (1d), blue (4d) and green (6d). ... De La Rue took over the contract in 1863."
