Re-entries

New Zealand has some wonderful re-entries and misplaced entries. Following are some that I have found.

At present, the listings below are not in the proper Scott order, but added as they became available. I hope to reorganize this page into several different pages with the various issues properly grouped together.

*** THIS PAGE IS ON MY LIST FOR A COMPLETE OVERHAUL! COMING SOON! ***

The Chalon Heads are so special in New Zealand re-entries and misplaced entries that I have given them their own page.

Scott #151 1916-1926

Foreign Entry

2 1/2d on 4d

Plate 20 Row 4 Number 10

This is another denominational error, similar to the U.S. 5¢ on 2¢ seen elsewhere. Here the remnants of the '2' and the slash (/) of the 1/2 can be seen in the UL numeral box. I find these errors delightful!

My first copy of this stamp was a gift to me from the late Bill Percy.

These can also be found on the yellow printings, although they are much more difficult to see.

*March 16, 2006 - I just acquired a beautiful block of 4 of the yellow colour with the foreign transfer on the upper right stamp. Scroll down to see the block and a close-up of the UL corner of the UR stamp.

Also note the odd perforations on the bottom pair of the block.

Scott #151 1916-1926

Foreign Entry

4 1/2d on 4d

Plate 20 Row 1 Number 6

This is another denominational error, similar to the U.S. 5¢ on 2¢ seen elsewhere. Here the remnants of the '4 1/2' can be seen in the UR numeral box. There are also marks in the crown and in the top margin. I find these errors delightful!

These can also be found on the yellow printings, although they are much more difficult to see.

Scott #151 1916-1926

Foreign Entry

4 1/2d on 4d ??

Plate ? Row ? Number ?

This is another denominational error, similar to the U.S. 5¢ on 2¢ seen elsewhere. Here remnants can be seen in the UR numeral box. This is very similar to the two stamps shown above, but the plate position of this one is not known. The website from which I got the other plate positions does not list this one.

These can also be found on the yellow printings, although they are much more difficult to see.

Scott #101 or 109

One and One Half Penny

The Major Re-entry

Plate 197690  R2/12

This is a stamp I knew existed, but until now, had never seen it. This is one of New Zealand's finest re-entries, with the entire design completely and strongly doubled in a clockwise twist of the transfer roll. This is easily seen in the upper corner frames, the value tablet, NEW ZEALAND, both men and both horses, and the entire background behind them.

This scan was sent in by a new correspondent, Bob Turkowski.

Aug. 2009 - I have finally been able to acquire a couple of copies of this lovely re-entry, and have added some larger scans below Bob's.

Scott #84   1900

One Penny

Re-entry

There is nice doubling of the UR corner, showing in the 'ND' of ZEALAND, the 'R NU' of REVENUE, and part of the central oval.

This stamp surprised me...While it appears to me to be a typographed stamp, and therefore not a re-entry, a check of my Scott Classic Specialized Catalogue tells me this issue was engraved!?!  Really???
