WANTED: Chatham Islands Postmarks Required (See Details...)

Post by Catweazle »

Calling all hoarders, eagle-eyed hawks, boredom busters, auction-catalogue-readers and kiloware shufflers! :lol:

I'm pursuing the rather thematic subject of Chatham Islands flora and fauna and I'm on the lookout for the following stamps and cancellations to support my collection.

It's all a bit niche as you can see so it's tricky. Here's hoping that I might strike lucky out there one day when a fellow Stampboarder stumbles upon something and just so happens to remember me. :) Help me out if you can, folks!

Contact me via these boards if you can help.
  • Seeking ANY material postmarked from OWENGA. Now the Owenga post office wasn't open for very long (25/05/1927 – 05/09/1929), however if you see something for sale, let me know.
  • I am also seeking ANY early pre-datestamper manuscript cancellations like the one pictured below:
INV-53851itExt.JPG
  • I am also seeking ANY PITT ISLAND cancellations that are NOT from the millennium era (I know, fussy isn't he!) so the earlier the better – however I don’t believe there remains to this day a Pitt Island date stamper in use, since my understanding is that all mail now gets cancelled at Waitangi, but prove me wrong if you can!
  • In addition, and the real reason for this post, I am seeking ANY of the following stamps listed below on the condition that they are:
    ~ used – preferably on cover or piece – from or to the CHATHAM ISLANDS unless otherwise stated.
    ~ This could potentially be difficult because I don't even know if the Waitangi post office received stocks of all these issues at one time or another.

Here's a New Zealand 30 cent Kākāpō Bird.

Yes, kākāpō are indeed found on the Chatham Islands!
These unique parrots, known for their nocturnal habits and bizarre breeding system, were once abundant throughout New Zealand’s main islands. However, due to their flightlessness and vulnerability to introduced predators, they now inhabit protected offshore islands and a fenced mainland sanctuary12.

Here is the Bird & Chatham Islands 29 DEC 1986 Postmark of Unveiling of Moriori Monument.
