New Zealand 1967 Centenary of the Post Office Savings Bank.





I once had an account at that bank, but it (the bank) is sadly no longer extant.

I still recall (as a teenage philatelist), how impressed I was when these beautiful stamps were issued, back in '67. The metallic colours and the realistic coins are most impressive!

"Stamps marked with the name of the Isle of Man were first issued in 1971; the first issue was a variant of the 'Machin' design. Since 1973 only Manx stamps have been valid on the island, and Manx stamps are not valid for postage in the UK or elsewhere. Isle of Man stamps have since become popular with philatelists.

When sending mail to the Island from elsewhere, the Isle of Man is treated as though it were part of the United Kingdom, and mail from the UK continues to be charged at Royal Mail's UK inland rates. However, postcodes were not introduced in the Isle of Man until 1993, when the Island was postcoded as the IM postcode area as an extension of the United Kingdom postcode system.

Mail sent from the Island to the UK is flown across the Irish Sea, and enters the first-class stream of the Royal Mail for next-day delivery."

Not sure about international destinations- presumably the above also applies?

UY-andersen-FDC1.jpg
Upper Yafa 2005 Hans Christian Andersen bicentennial.




As a good Moslem country, the Upper Yafa Post Office carefully left out the writer's middle name, so as not to offend good Moslem patrons buying and licking the stamps.

One Danish colleague vigorously argued against this, citing "accuracy". But the Post Office considered that an oasis filled with peaceful people was far preferable to riots among the clients!

A huge thank you to all on Stampboards who offered their congratulations on our 50th wedding anniversary 2 days ago. How we managed it I do not know. I suspected that I might be smothered in my sleep as it is alleged that I occasionally snore.

New Zealand 1947 Lighthouse set on FDC.


Such a nice morning lighthouse you have shown, Puffin! One wonders where it is?

The city of Christchurch was for many years considered the "philatelic capital" of New Zealand, due to the large number of stamp dealers and collectors located there.

But the biggest firms were sold to Mowbrays near Wellington, so it has declined a bit. Though still has several clubs and a dedicated building for meetings, which few other NZ cities can rival!

Note the two different colour versions of the 30c stamp!

(The pale teal one is caused by exposure to sunlight, which causes rather startling colour change.)

So the warning is: Keep your stamp collection indoors and away from direct sunlight!

New Zealand 2020 Life Insurance envelope with several Lighthouse stamps, sent from Palmerston North, 25th August 2020.





This cover includes two of the demonetised 1947 issue (just to pretty-up the cover!) and other Lighthouse stamps, to make up the $1.40 postage rate.

I love the
green printed text on the envelope! The Life Insurance Department had a big range of varying coloured envelopes, which brighten up our collections. 8-)
