This label promoting Berlin's 1928 "Youth Friendly Stamp Show" features a young child posting mail in a letter box. The proof (on left) is printed on thinner paper and features a sharper image, which probably cannot be discerned from this scan.

There is no country name on this stamp, but the logo in the lower right corner indicates that it is an emission of New Zealand Post.

This type of stamp is known as a Customised Advertising Label (CAL). These are personalised stamps produced by NZ Post, and for use locally or on overseas mail. This one was issued in 2012.

Philately and the Letter Box: Please be aware that earlier this year I produced a fourth edition of my handbook on this topic (as promised in this thread back in 2013). It consists of a 1,780 page multi-section set covering the theme of letter box philatelic material through to the end of 2017.

Download it for FREE from www.stampprinters.info/plb4.htm as part of my contribution to the literature of philately.

Separately, I have also produced in conjunction with my co-writer Graham Wilson...
British Stamp Exhibitions: This three volume set consists of 1,730 pages, 3,047 colour scans and lists 7,819 British stamp exhibition souvenirs to the end of 2017.

Download it for FREE from www.stampprinters.info/bse4.htm
