2004 Olympic Games$2 Peter Snell with the Laminated Lenticular Image Inverted CP #S918aZ, apparently commercially used but uncancelled, on the reverse remnants of the red envelope from which it was removed, Cat $NZ3000 mint; unpriced used. An extraordinary and bizarre error, and the only used example known to us. With a normal used example for comparison. [It's a surprise that such an idiotic production could even pass through the cancelling machines without being de-laminated, but the normal stamp proves this was possible]
