Lovely squared circle cover Bob!

Have a Scott 98 used as a Revenue to add to this thread.


The 2/- and 5/- were mainly used on parcels, telegrams, and for fiscal purposes.
Postally used copies of the 5/- are "rare"

Look for:
colourless design embossed on back, stamps sold as mint copies or postmarked.
These are Fiscally used.

Look for:
One of the printing staff, accidentally dropped a screwdriver
onto the plate, and this dented it.
result is a cigar shaped white mark in her Majesty's ear.

Thanks Rod. There is no QV "screwdriver flaw" in my collection/accumulation, as far as I can see.

Here is another old cancellation type. This is the concentric circles steel date stamp, which made its NZ appearance in 1894, and continued to be commonly used until around 1905, according to my old trading partner. Also, he (Darryl) noted that the 2 concentric circles type pmk's (as opposed to the 3 or 4 concentric circles) are difficult to find.

The 1910 New Plymouth postmark usage on the postcard, shown here, may or may not be late usage. The reference/illustration shown here is not known to me, except that it is from a postmarks of New Zealand volume.

The back of the postcard is a B & W litho view of Tenerife (Nobrega's English Bazar printing).

Hi Bob,

Nor any in my collection of 7 stamps, can be confusing, there is a white blob, on Her Majesty's lower earlobe, I think an earing.

Great information you show! all new to me,
I have no catalogues on Kiwi Postmarks.

I have no double circle Pmks, only a web image of 1, that has an internal split ring as well, I don't assume this qualifies.

Lots of squared circle, 3 ring and 4 ring cancels.

Your TARJETA POSTAL is curious, originates in Argentina?
TARGETA = Spanish = Card


I have an *.pdf on "NZ Marine Postmarks"
Look for
NZ Marine Postmarks, on Hawaiian, and United States Stamps
(San Francisco to Auckland Service)

That's not a earring! I thought it was


We are referring to the 1d "2nd Sideface" stamps that have the "Cigar Flaw"

The 2nd Sidefaces, were of inferior production values, from the first sidefaces.
They also introduced "Postage and Revenue" in the inscriptions.

Note the blob on Her Majesty's ear

Both CHRISTCHURCH 4 ring CDS Pmks

The right stamp,
the flaw occurs once in each sheet, and is sought after.
I have never seen the flaw, so cannot comment on what it would look like.

The Campbell Paterson catalog lists the "screwdriver" flaw for varieties throughout the use of the 1 d second side face, beginning with the die 3, type 2 perf 12 x 11 1/2 (1889) to the perf 11 (1897) issues. It also lists a "chisel" flaw, but neither of the 2 flaws are illustrated in my version of the catalog.

Just noticed that seller Irgray10 in Waitara, NZ is currently selling a "screwdriver" flaw on eBay.

Also, nzstamps.org.uk website illustrates both the "screwdriver" and "chisel" plate flaws on their website.

Here is one more concentric circles steel date stamp. This one is Greymouth (South Island) 12 August, 1912 on the KE VII 1/2 d of 1909. The pmk form is like the first Christchurch cancel shown on the book illustration several postings back.

This Bromley, NZ postcard was printed in France. Early NZ postcards in my collection were made in many different places. Some are locally printed.

Thanks Rod. I wondered about this. The postcard image looks so English. There is a Bromley, NZ. It is a suburb of Christchurch, and apparently it is not a garden spot/attractive place at all...industrial storage tanks, sewage treatment facility, etc.

Here is the last concentric circle pmk, I promise. This one is Dunedin and it has a strange ornament/dingbat beneath the town name. Also, note the plate marking below the first "D" of Dunedin in the left margin.

Oft referred to as a "Fleuron" or "Device" in philatelic parlance.
Cannot recall seeing it before, I'll look through my collection.
I do not see it having any meaning, but have been wrong before.

Possibly an EFO, does not look like a plate punch.
I do not have that stamp (Sc#93) in my collection.
