Hi all! I was going through a box of stamps and found this on the bottom. The item is printed on a card. It Feels pretty rigid and thick. Is this a real proof or is it a reprint or something else? Any and all help is greatly appreciated. I thank you in advance.

Cheers Frank,
must confess, the NZ Chalon proofs remain a mystery to me.
I have no pertinent reference material to study.

I like your style.
That's how I pass on knowledge in my albums.

Interesting paper on your Commercial paper "MILLER" Watermark (Cannot read the other word) could not find it on any Australian paper

rod222, I will do my best to try to get a clear close-up of the watermarkings on the paper for you.

I tried to blow up the full-sized image and it get distorted. I held the item up to a ceiling light and the word under MILLER is ONION. Under the word ONION, that word appears to be Company. Kind of hard to make it out because of the typed print on the paper. When I have some free time over the next day or two, I will play around with some adjusted lighting and see if I can make the watermarkings out better.
