1935 commercial airmail cover to Austria with scarce solo franking of Silver Jubilee 2/- violet tied by 'WAVERLEY/NSW' cds, Athens transit & Vienna arrival b/s. [The rate was 1/9d for air to Brindisi, then by rail; or 2/- by air all the way]

1941 unusual size envelope (185x197mm) to USA with 'CALIFORNIA/CLIPPER' h/s & rare franking of Robes £1 block of 4 (a few faults) + 4d Koala & 2/- Roo tied by Sydney cds of 24JY41, minor wrinkles. One of the highest-rated World War II airmail covers we have recorded, making this a wonderful item for the airmail enthusiast or the collector of KGVI issues. [NB: this cover does fit on a standard album page]

The Clipper rate to the USA was 4/8d for the first ½oz + 4/7d for each successive ½oz. Total postage of £4/2/4d = 988d. Postage for a letter weighing between 8½ & 9oz was 4/8d + 4/7d x17 = 991d, indicating underpayment of 3d (or an unlikely overpayment of 4/4d). [NB: Kevin Nelson's entire packet wrapping to GB with Robes 10/- strip of 5 & £1 strip of 4 sold at the Prestige auction of 27.11.2010 for $7187]

1996 Health (Road Safety) 40c Teddy Bear sheet stamp CP #T68a (SG 2000a), unmounted, CP Cat $NZ2000 (£800). With the redrawn 40c for comparison. [A similar example sold at our auction of 30.9.2015 for $625]

The proposed design caused an outcry because the baby should have been facing the rear of the car to comply with safety regulations. The stamps were immediately withdrawn & redesigned. However, some were sold by NZ Post "in error" - they make a lot of "errors" - and commercially used examples are known, including on cover: see the next lot.

1996 Health (Road Safety) (Teddy Bear) M/S as SG MS2002 but from the original printing with the Teddy Bear & Baby Facing Forwards and 'SC 439' at upper-left unmounted, Michel Cat €12,000. Unlisted by Campbell Paterson. [With the Joh Enschedé folder in which it was supplied by the printers; and a normal M/S for comparison]

Gibbons, in a rather disingenuous footnote, state "There is no evidence to link these miniature sheets with New Zealand"!! which sounds like NZ Post "spin". According to our Dutch sources, the original M/Ss had been distributed by the printers, Enschedé in the Netherlands, to their staff before a recall was announced. Examples sold in the Prestige auctions of 9.2.2008 & 30.3.2012 for $2415 & $1840 respectively]
