Description: 1958 Trans-Tasman Flight original handpainted horizontal essay (205x128mm) of a Biggles-like "Smithy" - apparently based on a photo of Jim Nabours - & the "Southern Cross" in shades of blue highlighted with China white on artboard (310x257mm), labelled "Comprehensive 'Rough' for Finished Line Original". Ex Reg Ferguson & Derrick Ray. [Because this was a joint issue with Australia, the preliminary designs are relevant to the Australian issue even though they are all inscribed 'NEW ZEALAND'. Richard Breckon has confirmed that there is no preliminary artwork for the Joint Issue in the Australia Post Archives. However, several die proofs inscribed New Zealand are held by Australia Post. This supports our vendor's contention - with which we agree - that all preliminary designs can properly be treated - and exhibited - as Australian material.
