This strip of 8 unwatermarked stamps was issued on September 15, 1949. Very scarce it shows 3 stamps on the left being affected by ink stripping, starting from the third stamp and progressing to the first stamp, both the second and first stamp being the worst affected. The kangaroo, the text and value on the first stamp disappearing.

I've seen this strip posted in an earlier thread, but always nice to bring it up in its own thread. It would seem that there are more than just one strip, right?

Hi Partime

It may have been me who had posted this strip earlier. As far as I know there are two strips such as this, I have a block of 4 showing various states of ink stripping.
This strip is quite spectacular with the fading stamps.
