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 The stamps were immediately withdrawn & redesigned.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]
