And one mouth watering example of New Zealand's first foray into dual colour recess printing also from the 1898 series :)

Roly-

That is a stunning series that has some of my favorite NZ stamps. I can't think of a one that isn't gorgeous, with the possible exception of the Maori canoe, but then I've not seen one in the kind of condition you are showing, so I should reserve judgment. Your examples are pristine.

Oh sorry Collin, I messed up a bit. The 1d,5d,6d,2s and 5s were printed by Waterlow as I am sure you know better than me. They are the only ones printed with the line perf, while all others were printed with comb (Bradbury and De La Rue). I heard some of the later Waterlow were done with comb, but never seen any. I do know the Elizabethan issue have comb and line, for those values changed to cents.


My ancient Commonwealth Five Reigns seems to suggest that the last De La Rue printings of the 3d (black & deep blue, 27/4/55) and the 1/- (black & deep turquoise-blue, 8/5/51) were comb perf 12.

I've flogged this one to death elsewhere, but just in case someone hasn't yet seen this die proof of Hyderabad SG 1 ...

Nice stuff Roly - I like looking for tiny details, such as the ship in the 2d from the NZ 1898 Pictorial Series.

I have to add this, one of my favourites. The story is the Gilbert and Ellice Islands natives did not want British Royalty on their first stamps.



It shows a pandanus tree - the fruit is edible and the leaves are used to make mats and thatched roofs - one of the most important trees in Kiribati and Tuvalu (formerly Gilbert and Ellice).
