On August 16, 1965 the Caribbean island of Saint Vincent issued a set of sixteen pictorial definitives. The low value one cent definitive depicted ship building on the island of Bequia. The cross stroke on the "Q" appeared to be missing. On August 8, 1967 this value was reissued with a retouch making the cross-stroke in the "Q" more clearly visible.
