OK so what I was wondering is how can I tell the year this particular copy of this issue was printed. I was doing some research and the source said that this stamp was first produced in 1905, and was printed as needed through the 1940's.

I appreciate any help!

re: Lighthouse Insurance Stamp

The different printing types can be told by changes in face value, watermark, perforation, color and paper. Gibbons lists 27 of these stamps (Gibbons #L21-L41), while Scott only lists 19 (Scott #OY10-OY28). The catalogs will tell you the year each stamp was issued.

re: Lighthouse Insurance Stamp

Michel lists 15 stamps, but with varieties included (perforations, colour varieties etc.) the total is 24.
The stamp you list has 4 varieties: 3 with watermark single star with NZ, 1 with watermark multiple stars / NZ. The 3 with the single star can further be divided into green and yellow-green and the yellow-green one comes with perforation 14 and 14:15

Hope this helps.

re: Lighthouse Insurance Stamp

Thanks guys for the help. I guess this means I need to check my local library's copy of the Scott Specialized Catalog and figure out which stamp I have.

re: Lighthouse Insurance Stamp

The 1/2d stamp you have posted the image of looks to be yellow green. That means per Scott it could be one of two:

OY10 - watermark 61 (NZ and star close together) 2015 catalog value $1.40 / $0.90
OY24 - watermark 253 (multiple NZ and star) 2015 catalog value $1.90 / $1.90
