Staying with the area of New Zealand.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Two stamps being the 1'9d and 3/-values that were replaced by multi-coloured ones from the original 1960 New Zealand pictorial issue.

45 cents would have been the price to pay at the post office in 1967 for these 2 miniature sheets of health stamps. >



What price would you pay for them today ?

Three or four quid, so they may just have kept pace with inflation.

You may very well be correct GeoffHa in saying £3-£4, but this New Zealand dealer is selling the pair of miniature sheets u/m for NZ$46.80 and very fine used for NZ$90.



That equates to £24.48 and £47.07 respectively in GB cash. WOW !!!

I only hope that you can find them at the price you quoted.

An abundance of halfpenny stamps stuck on the back of a telegraph form, probably sourced from a coil, as many are strips of 4+ rather than blocks from a sheet.

Here is a nice cylinder block of 6 that shows the printing error "MISSING BLACK" (no rigging) on the 1975 8p sailing issue, with a normal example for comparison.

A good reason for collecting in blocks !

Dare I say it, I think the boats look much better without the rigging! Though the texture adds something to the sea

Well spotted chrispinhi, as the sea was also affected because of the "missing black", along with the sailors in the yachts.
