The 'shift dot' items that you have both put up are really interesting. Bob's advice on there being more dot combinations than the books report is great. I find that I can't even keep up with what's in the books let alone make new discoveries myself - I have a high opinion of genuine philatelic researchers.
Is the UK society a very active one, Bob? Do you find it helpful for exchanging information etc? I tend to be the only collector of New Zealand in this part of Sydney - even Tony is miles away.
I didn't know about the different states of the 4d centre plate 4. I don't know the answer but I hope you find out and report it here. I agree that the Blitz Issues are the most interesting. I obtained my used 4d perf. 14 line only a few weeks ago though I had a stamp for years that I had bought as line perf. but was finally convinced that it wasn't.

Mark, my website is stand-alone. The original images aren't stored elsewhere though Tony has copied them to another site where they can be viewed sequentially instead of having to go back to the thumbnails each time. This is the site here:

http://members.home.nl/bas.de.reuver/files/fusker.html?http: ... 156%5D.jpg

I don't really understand how it works.

HI Graeme.
I will post some shift dots for all soonish

The link is one big line. Copy any paste as one item. that includes the ? etc all as 1 line

The images are not stored anywhere it is just picking them all up from Graeme's site and opening them sequentially

Lets try and get the link right.

I guess the problems are that it is a link within a link
It is one line starting with http://members" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
and finishing with [001-112].jpg

Looking back on a earlier discussion on countercoils, I just found this 1d with a left hand piece attached to the reverse of the stamp. Am I right to assume that this is a example of a used countercoil , and if it is, would you be able to help me best describe it, so I can include in my album.

Hi Mark
Looks like a standard coil join to me.
Good if you can get a pair where the stamps from the front are slightly misaligned.
I will try and scout one out to illustrate.

Bob,

Thank you very much for your advice on the New Zealand Society of Great Britain. My wife and I spent two nights and a day in York in September - it wasn't nearly long enough. However, I don't think I'll be allowed to pop over again for a philatelic weekend.

It has always been my intention to get a run of the Society's journal, the 'Kiwi' one of these days but it seems that it has never been the right time.

Kev, thanks for your comment. I hope you are reading the Manly-Warringah clubs' forum here on Stampboards.

Hi Folks

Small design, single wmk on cover to New Zealand. Campbell Paterson lists the issue date
as 29 Sep 1941 for the multiple wmk. This cover is dated 13th? Sep 1941, am I right to assume
it is the scarcer single wmk on issue May to September 1941?
Image

This cover shows the 2½d perf 13½ X 14 wet printing, along with a 1½d single wmk
perf 14 X 13½.

Yes, I think it must be a single watermark, well spotted, adds a bit of value ! Nice cover with the illustration, the 9d certainly has a connection with war mail, I am always looking out for just regular usage of this stamp, got a couple but not alot .
Have you checked the string line for doubling on the Maori girl cooking on the other cover.

Hi Mark.

Nice reg cover.

I think the 9d smaller design single wmk on cover dated within period of use might prove to be a tough thing
to replicate, being issued for only 5 months or so.

Yes I did check the 1½d and no doubling. I have picked up some nice used copies out of dealers stocks though :lol:

Did servicemen get half price postage rates to send letters home?

Here is a pair of L11a used Nov 1935 on commercial cover making the 1/6 rate to England. The 9d's are easy
to find on FFC's but a fair bit tougher on normal mail.

I can across this rather nice cover today amongst my boxes of "stuff"

A Last day of issue cover.

I can't find any reference as to what the expected CV might be, any clues?

It is likely to end up in the For Sale Forum shortly to fund a rather large purchase of Penny Universals I have coming ................ sighhhhhhhh :)

Hi Roly, I have never seen one of those before, Do you think its a official cover for the first three (?) denominations that were withdrawn in 1938, The flower design is kind of naive looking compared to the first day covers.

I am not too sure about this modern material Mark :)

I have seen these covers before but most of them have been very tatty indeed.

This one stuck out in that it is in excellent condition for it's age.

I am not sure what price to put on it but I am sure a '35 collector would have some idea.

Now if it were a Universal or a Dominion or 1898 Pictorial that would be a another story altogether.

Cheers

1935 Cover

Post by rgc119 »

Hi
Here is a cover with quite a few 1935 pictorials. As the postmark is 13 September 1935, all the pictorials must have a single watermark. The total value of the franking is 6s 0d which is four times the standard rate.

Direction of Perforations

Post by rgc119 »

Hi
The 1935 Pictorials give scope for all kinds of specialist research. For example, a recent article in The New Zealand Stamp Collector, the Journal of the Royal Philatelic Society of New Zealand describes the different directions in which the comb perforations took place.

In the first few years, the sheets were perforated either from left to right or from right to left as shown in the following examples of the 2d plate 1A.

Image Image

The block of 4 is perforated from left to right while the pair is perforated from right to left and so the perforations extend into the left margin.

Later, a different comb perforation head was used and the sheets were perforated either from top to bottom or from bottom to top as in the examples of plates 5A and 5B.

Image Image

Plate 5A is top to bottom while 5B is from bottom to top. Plates 2A and 2B each exist in all four possibilities.

Further information is on my website at: https://www.stampboards.com/images/nzstamps/35pictorials/twopence/index.html

Hi Mark
The different directions are not listed in the catalogues and so it is likely that no one really knows the answer to your question. The article seems to be the first attempt to do a systematic study. Most of the 2d on fine paper were perforated left to right or right to left and appear to be uncommon top to bottom or bottom to top. On the other hand, the 2d on coarse paper seems to be less common left to right or right to left.

I have one block not listed in the article: Plate 4B top to bottom.
Image
Assume that if people look through their pictorial plate blocks they will find other examples of blocks not listed.

Just received this cover yesterday from a recent auction, I purchased for its nice selection of single watermarks on cover, the cover itself is rather tatty and showing its age
Image
But look at the 3d Maori girl, Has anyone ever seen that marking on her shoulder before ?
Image
and a close up
Image
I have gone through hundreds of 3ds and never seen anything like this before, there seems to be two crescent type markings, It would be great to know if there are any other similar stages of markings on this original printing.

One of my favourite speciality areas. I have one question.
SG has no cv for 'used' 1935 2/- COQK flaw . Refer SG # 568a 568ca but has
a cv for 1936-42 Issue 'used' refer SG # 589a, 589ca, 589ea.

Is there no known stamps 'used' from 1935 Issue ?

Thanks for any information in this regard.

Hi there,
Not sure about SG but CP list it as L13d(Y) uhm [at] NZ$975.00 and Fu [at]$ 95.00,

This is the issue that the collectors at the time missed, thus not many mint saved.

Hope this helps.

Has anyone ever seen a CoQk flaw on cover ?

The worm flaw is the top one,that's because the lines on it supposedly look like the segments of a worm.

I'm no expert but those stamps don't look to be line perforated. Every hole at the intersection of a row and a column of perforations is nearly perfectly round.

The block pictured below is also listed on eBay as SG 583c, and in my opinion are line perforated.

I agree with you.
I was just interested if there was any interest in principle - but no.

It was not a line perf - thank you for bringing me back to reality.

The plate block was unsold when I last checked a few minutes ago. The seller has a US$599 buy-it-now price on it. The item number is 360102458592.

CP's price for a plate block of 4 stamps is NZ$2850.

All collectors of the 1935 Pictorials, are you familiar with these?
Image
4 cinderella sheets showing unadopted essays
for the 1935 Pictorial set. Offset-printed on
glossy paper and imperf.


The Auckland Philatelic Society holds an annual exhibition near the middle of each year. It is open to the public (apart from those philatelists under a "ban" decree issued by the mercurial B. Chadderton, our president), and in 2010 was held over the two days of 12th & 13th June 2010 at Mt Albert War Memorial Hall, Wairere Avenue, Mt Albert. Entry was free.

11 dealers had stalls there, and were kept busy by visitors. The club charges the dealers seeking stalls the amount of the hall rental + security & advertising (divided by number of dealers), so the exhibition cost is covered.

Each year, the APS issues a free cinderella minisheet, which is given away to visitors along with an exhibition catalogue. For 2010 however the free minisheet was charged ($2 each), and there were four sheets: two for each day. Each sheet showed an unadopted essay for the 1935 pictorials, in larger than stamp-size format, and imperf.

The theme of that year's show was "75th anniversary of the NZ 1935 pictorial issue."

Saddest thing about the year's show though, was the tiny number of exhibitors. Only four members of the club submitted exhibits, and with such a small number, the club decided to forego the usual "judging" and awarding of prizes as has happened in all other years.

The exhibits were:

NZ 1935 Pictorials - Dave Shand.

NZ 1935 Pictorials - Mark Wooller.

NZ Postage Dues - Paul Yap.

Whakarewarewa Postcards - anonymous.

In this scribe's opinion, the Postage Due display by Mr Yap would undoubtedly have taken the trophy had the show been judged. His collection of the elusive Postage Due issues of NZ included covers of all the values, and I think everyone was pleasantly surprised to see such a trove. Mr Yap has clearly delved into many corners (and no doubt haunted many dealers!) to ferret out and compile a truly fascinating array of these unusual stamps, seldom seen these days apart from the low values.

Did anyone see the imperf cinderella sheets issued by a stamp club in New Zealand in 2010 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the 1935 Pictorials?

The four sheets show unadopted essays.

Here are some details about them from Trademe auction in NZ:

The Auckland Philatelic Society holds an annual exhibition near the middle of each year. It is open to the public (apart from those philatelists under a "ban" decree issued by the mercurial B. Chadderton, our president), and in 2010 was held over the two days of 12th & 13th June 2010 at Mt Albert War Memorial Hall, Wairere Avenue, Mt Albert. Entry was free.

11 dealers had stalls there, and were kept busy by visitors. The club charges the dealers seeking stalls the amount of the hall rental + security & advertising (divided by number of dealers), so the exhibition cost is covered.

Each year, the APS issues a free cinderella minisheet, which is given away to visitors along with an exhibition catalogue. For 2010 however the free minisheet was charged ($2 each), and there were four sheets: two for each day. Each sheet showed an unadopted essay for the 1935 pictorials, in larger than stamp-size format, and imperf.

The theme of that year's show was "75th anniversary of the NZ 1935 pictorial issue."

Saddest thing about the year's show though, was the tiny number of exhibitors. Only four members of the club submitted exhibits, and with such a small number, the club decided to forego the usual "judging" and awarding of prizes as has happened in all other years.

The exhibits were:

NZ 1935 Pictorials - Dave Shand.

NZ 1935 Pictorials - Mark Wooller.

NZ Postage Dues - Paul Yap.

Whakarewarewa Postcards - anonymous.

In this scribe's opinion, the Postage Due display by Mr Yap would undoubtedly have taken the trophy had the show been judged. His collection of the elusive Postage Due issues of NZ included covers of all the values, and I think everyone was pleasantly surprised to see such a trove. Mr Yap has clearly delved into many corners (and no doubt haunted many dealers!) to ferret out and compile a truly fascinating array of these unusual stamps, seldom seen these days apart from the low values.

In my quest to collect all the different Adverts on the reverse of the 1d 1935 Lettercard, I purchased this example from Trade Me,

A First Day cover, below is a close up of the cancel.

Does anyone else have any examples of this, I imagine its quite rare, in that most of the public were busy getting the regular pictorial FDC on May the 1st, and it was only the hardiest of the philatelics that thought of the lettercards.

Cheers Mark

Mark,

I think that is a fantastic buy. I haven't even considered the lettercards. You may have a unique item there.

Get advice before you mix postal stationery and stamps in the same exhibit at a stamp show. Are you going to Blenheim in October?

They look pretty good, Mark.

Can you read the postmarks? Do they look like places which would have had government offices for genuine usage?

Yes, I am vaguely thinking of remounting all the 1935s and trying to exhibit them again at Blenheim. Whether I actually get around to doing the work ...

This is one of my favourite sets and one I know much about, as I had to specialise in them when I worked at a stamp shop years ago.
To me they are the most interesting and iconic of all our stamps issues and the best thing is their relative accessibility to most collectors, unlike the 1898's they are relatively easy to obtain and the varities are easier to discren than the 98s which I love too, but do not have the time or money to build up a huge collection of, whereas I have many of the different varieties of 1935s. For most of the values, you can staright away tell the period of your stamp. Fine paper means its 1935 -1939 and if has a rough rag paper (You will know by the squared mesh) its a World War 2 period item.

Next you can always tell the original 35's, (Mostly L.a's in the CP) they have a vertical mesh and always are single watermark, whereas later printings have (Usually L.b's - g) depending on the printing) multiple watermarks. Plus you have the booklet panes and all the errors like the Captain CQOK error on the 2/-

One of these days I will start a thread on identifying types, like Colin did witth his South Africa 1926 - 1952 definitives. Unless its been done already.

The entry date for the Blenheim exhibition (12 - 14 October) has just been extended to 31 July.

I have sent my entry in for the 1935s re-mounted into 5 frames (80 album pages). Of course, I haven't actually done the re-mounting yet. My existing rather dis-organised 7 frames can still be viewed on my website:

Sure, you can even start it if you like. I thought about it and then realised I was biting off more than I can chew and I know many of you know more about it than me

Dear everyone,

I have put the semi-finalised title page of my exhibit for Blenheim on the title page comments thread:

http://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=8757&p=3065386#p3065386

Please do comment on that thread, preferably in the next 48 hours.

I don't think I will have time to post scans of the album pages on my personal website before I send the exhibit away. However, it is basically the same material there already, but reduced to 5 frames (from 7) and re-ordered somewhat.

My personal website is
http://www.stampsmw.top1.com.au

If anyone else is going to Blenheim, please advise on the Blenheim thread. I shall post the thread url in the next post (below this one).

Thanks Graeme for suggesting I try the 1935 Pictorial study group.
I am interested in seeing other examples/scans of 1942 5d Swordfish perf. 13¾ x 13½ [CPL8f, SG 584(c)] as Plate 1 [4]. My statistician suggests I aim for seeing 10 examples before I can be confident that all are the same (such as perforated BT). I have got to 7 ! Can any others help ?
