Yes, found another MASTERTON with similar FLEURON
3 ring
I would suggest these types attributed to a cancelling hammer producer/supplier, using similar designs in a batch order for NZ Post.

You will need to turn your head on the side, to see and realise the St Andrew's cross and 4 dots.

This, the only one in my 1,500 NZ stamps.

The Masterton mark is interesting. I found a second Dunedin postmark of the same type as other I showed on a pair of 1 s, Wellington printed birds. I wouldn't hazard a guess whether they were decorative, or indicated a particular window or clerk as user...or something else.

Here is another Wellington printing, perf 14, of the 6 d kiwi with enough marginal space on the left to show what looks to me like a plate marking.

Bob, is a "plate marking" the same as what I call an LOM, a location marker?

Peter, I believe that with some of the early NZ intaglio-printed stamps where the printing plates were prepared in New Zealand, some dots/small holes, or indentations were made to help as guides in the image transfer process. I can't quote "chapter and verse" on this because it has been a long while since I read this.

Personally, I would think any plate marks, location marks on NZ Issues be located in the selvedge, not occurring within the confines of the stamp limits. Opinion only.

Apropos plate mark,
I offer these Plate Marks in reference to Australian philately.

The two are not connected, but may give rise to reflection, or suggestion.
