re: PNG cover with 'up-rated provisionals'

Hi
PNG has a habit of running out of common stamps as you can see by the by the amount of up rated and down rated overprints.
This was a rate increase and instead of issuing various value new sets they just printed stamps to add to the older issues to make up the new rates.
Novel way to go I suppose.Like the Adelaide CPS stamps six 30c stamps to make up the 70c rate to the new $1-00 rate last year,as not many were done these sets are selling for over $2,000 a set.

I have a handful of provisionals on cover, but I also look for the different imprints.

This arrived today. It carries the very scarce July 1993 K1 reprint. I'll be offering it to a new home.

Sid, if you're interested, PM me. Think of "retail" you'd pay, then take 20% off that and we'll see if we agree Winking

I'd rather sell to someone who knows his stuff
