re: New Zealand Questions

Well my 2014 Scott does not have AR102-5 but I would think the answer lies in the top bar where the numerals are on the 404A-D.
looking at my SG the difference is that the 404A-D were in Decimal currency whereas the AR ones are in pre-decimal.

Edit, ok ignore my remarks re currency, they were both issued after 1966, I think I was confusing the 1931 date referenced in Scott.

re: New Zealand Questions

There is no longer a Scott AR102-105. At some point between 2006 (which lists AR102-5) and 2014, these were moved to the regular postage listings as 404A-D (the 2006 Scott does not have these numbers).

Therefore, there is no difference. These are one and the same stamps with revised catalogue listing.

Hi Roy,

am looking at my 2020 Scott & it has 404A-D & R102-R105. Hence my confusion.

re: New Zealand Questions

I see. I think they blew it. My 2006 Scott has AR102-5 and no 404A-D, but my 2018 does not have AR102-5 and does have 404A-D.

Worth an email to Amos Press.

re: New Zealand Questions

I think (usually wrongly)that Scott have put them in the postage stamp section initially because they were valid for postage, probably primarily on insured airmail.
Then put them in the fiscal section because they were also used there as the wording on the stamps says "postage and duty". Gibbons only lists them in the fiscal section.
I can understand a difference in used values for postal rather than Fiscal use but as mint stamps there can be no difference.
This is something Michael can amend when he wins the Powerball and buys Scott. He can also then alter, the irritating to a Brit, use by Scott of p instead of d for pre decimal issue denomination throughout the catalogue. The "D" standing for Denari.
