The stamps on the left are imperforate.

Some countries in the past have deliberately issued imperforated sheetlets.

Has New Zealand done the same?

Can you read the cancellation date on the imperf stamps, the printed date looks to be the same, 2009.

re: New Zealand Query

I must have missed what to click on to get the specification.

The 30cent was only on gummed paper not self adhesive.

I looked at them under UV light, both long and short wave. When compared side by side there was no noticable difference between them that could be spotted by the naked eye.

There are no ghost perforation marks between the two under magnification that I can see.

They may be genuine imperforated or part of a sheet of printers waste.

Its just a shame they are not on cover.

The tolega anomaly appears to be caused by a miniscule shift of the green colour.

I'll have a look at the d later. (I can't do it now as the missus is asleep and the stamp is in the next room)

I won't contact that site as they are in the process of trying to offload it.

Where did you find mention of a reprint in 2018 and they were available in coils and Booklets as 30c in 2018 was never a postal rate.
50 cents appears to be the smallest value stamp in booklets from 2009.

I've hunted the internet and can find no mention that the 30c is imperf or as a coil or in a booklet.
The PE45a mentioned in your last post is a major perf shift error.

re: New Zealand Query

I've heard back from New Zealand Post.

They confirm that the stamps came from an imperf sheet of stamps which was part of their rewards scheme and issued during 2010.

They would not tell me how many of these sheets were produced or distributed.

To earn the complete set of imperf sheets for the 2009 Scenic Definitives, of which the 30c is one of the set of 6 stamps, you have to purchase NZ$2000 (US$1453.91 at todays rate) worth of items from New Zealand Post.

I presume that most collectors would keep the imperf sheets for themselves thus I think that there would be few Used examples.

It all depends on your own definition postage use.

The pair I own have been used and been through the postal system.

It would have been great if the stamps were on a cover.

re: New Zealand Query

Just to let people know.

I have been unable to find any further information as to where these originate or value. I have tried a few "reputable" authorities but have never had a response so far.

re: New Zealand Query

I've heard back from New Zealand Post.

They confirm that the stamps came from an imperf sheet of stamps which was part of their rewards scheme and issued during 2010.

They would not tell me how many of these sheets were produced or distributed.

To earn the complete set of imperf sheets for the 2009 Scenic Definitives, of which the 30c is one of the set of 6 stamps, you have to purchase NZ$2000 (US$1453.91 at todays rate) worth of items from New Zealand Post.

I presume that most collectors would keep the imperf sheets for themselves thus I think that there would be few Used examples.

" ... None of the items here are available for general sale. ..."

Would that not mean they are labels and not legitimately, "postage stamps ?"

re: New Zealand Query

It all depends on your own definition postage use.

The pair I own have been used and been through the postal system.

It would have been great if the stamps were on a cover.
