    New Zealand 1930 series of 36 die proofs (SGF145/68a)

    £25,000.00

    New Zealand 1930 series of 36 die proofs (SGF145/68a)

     

    For Sale: £25,000

     

    1930 Series of thirty-six stamp-size die proofs in black on glazed card for the 1931-40 'Arms' postal fiscal issue, affixed to two ledger pages (numbered '261' and '262') and headed 'NEW ZEALAND / STAMP DUTIES', each proof handstamped 'CANCELLED' in RED and numbered below, arranged in groups according to the different side-panel designs as follows:

    'DESIGN No. 1' commencing with an original undenominated master proof for the whole series with uncleared value tablets and side-panels, a master proof showing side-panels, 'SIXPENCE' at foot and uncleared value tablet at top, and four completed proofs for the 1s3d, 2s6d, 7s6d and 12s6d values;

    'DESIGN No. 2' comprising two master proofs showing side-panels, 'SHILLINGS' at foot and uncleared value tablet at top, and eleven completed proofs for the 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s, 10s, 15s, 25s, 30s and 35s values;

    'DESIGN No. 3' comprising master proof showing side-panels, 'TEN SHILLINGS' at foot and uncleared value tablet at top, and three completed proofs for the £2.10, £3.10 and £4.10 values;

    'DESIGN No. 4' comprising master proof showing side-panels, 'POUNDS' at foot and uncleared value tablet at top, and ten completed proofs for the £1, £2, £3, £4, £5, £6, £7, £8, £9, £10 values;

    'DESIGN No. 5' comprising two master proofs showing side-panels and undenominated value tablets at top and foot (one with uncleared value tablets and the other with cleared value tablets, this last intended to allow the production of additional values via locally produced duty plates, as with SG 700, 825 and F212/6).

    Although the stamps were printed by the Govt Ptg Office, Wellington, the original dies and plates were produced by the Royal Mint.

    A unique and magnificent series of the utmost importance, never previously available to collectors.

    From the recently discovered proof book presented to Royal Mint engraver H.A.Richardson on his retirement (when the red 'CANCELLED' handstamp was applied).

    [The Postage Stamps of New Zealand vol 1, pp.514-5 refers to the Royal Mint engraving steel dies and making 32 electrotype plates. This probably relates to 28 denominated values, and four partly denominated ('AND SIXPENCE', 'SHILLINGS', 'TEN SHILLINGS' and 'POUNDS') values.

    N.B. It should be pointed out that the reverses of the two ledger pages remain intact, and comprise '260' with nine Irish 'income tax' die proofs and '263' with an important range of twelve NZ 1938 postal stationery die proofs, each with the same 'CANCELLED' handstamp.]

    Couple of trivial blemishes mentioned for accuracy (1s with small corner thin, 3s with minor split at top of frame due to pressure of printing), but a beautiful series of great rarity.

    [The ½d, 1d, 1½d and 3d values are not present; the 9d value of the set was printed by lithography by Waterlow, and does not exist in this form].

    Prince William signed 2003 first day cover

    £3,950.00

    • A 2003 first day cover signed by Prince William
    • Also included are four stamps bearing William’s likeness and another unsigned first day cover
    • Click here to find out more about this piece 

    Prince William, born 1982, is the son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana and second in line to the throne of the United Kingdom. He served with the RAF for four years from 2009-2013 before taking on his full-time royal duties.  

    A unique Prince William signature on a June 6, 2003 first day cover featuring four stamps bearing his likeness.

    The original owner of this signature acquired it at an event hosted by homeless charity Solas in Newport, South Wales in 2003. Homelessness is a cause close to William’s heart. He attended the event with his father, Prince Charles.

    While there, the owner quietly asked if he wouldn’t mind signing. It’s against royal protocol for the Windsors to autograph personal items, making this a fabulous rarity. It's accompanied by a letter of provenance and a photograph of the prince signing.
