Unauthorised postal use is known care should be taken as local post offices cancelled wage books with post office cancel, see below picture

--

Note: I have several complete books with no stamps in only Post Office bulk payment receipts for: Emergency Wages Charge from 1931-1958. I am not sure if this was due to lack of the availability of stamps or not, because from March 1946 a law was passed that payments over 2 could be made by cheque or cash with the receipt then pasted to the wages book. 1946 also saw the last of the 4 issue.

It is surprising the highest value was only 4. I have many receipts showing weekly payments of 5, 10, 25 to over 50

Honey Seals

1938-1967

Partly gleaned from from NZRPS v6. On 1 December 1938, the Honey Marketing Regulations came into force. These stated that: There shall be imposed on all honey sold in New Zealand a levy computed according to the net weight of the honey packed in any container with the exception of honey sold in the comb. These were printed at the Government Printing Office, Wellington

--

Internal Marketing Division of the Primary Products Marketing Department [P.P.M.D]

19381953

The initial rates were d for 8oz or less, d up 16oz and 1d up to 2lbs, thereafter d per pound of honey. The lower values d, d and 1d were for cardboard pots while the higher values of 2d and 5d were for tins and the 2/6 for a barrel. The Honey Marketing Regulations 1953, saw the levy increased to d per 8oz, effectively doubling the rate. A 2d value stamp was required. The new levy made the d redundant and were surcharged with a 2d value and used as such. At the same time the 2d was overprinted 5d. It is not clear when, but a second overprinting took place for the 5d on d green

On 1st April 1987 the New Zealand Post Office was divided into three separate operating companies [...] The first change was the withdrawal of all NZ Postal Notes effective 1st August 1986. This was announced in NZPO memorandum POHQ 685/41 dated 22 July 1986. According to the memorandum, office managers were to arrange by 7 August 1986 "for all withdrawn postal notes in their district to be destroyed by either burning, shredding or bagged and buried ... No postal note should be cashed if the date of issue is after [31 July 1986]" ... Postal Notes were replaced by Inland Money Orders.

NZPO memorandum POHQ 680317/1 dated 16 February 1987 announced a further change. " At the close of business on Friday 27 February 1987 all ... post offices ... are to withdraw from sale all BPO
's on hand, I.E. 25P, 50P, 75P, 1 and 2 denominations ... From 2 March 1987 2, 5 AND 10 BPO's will be available WITHOUT NEW ZEALAND overprint ... If [customers] insist on purchasing BPO's a special requisition may be made."

Auckland airport; Also seen $22 and $25 denominations. The $22 would probably have been as a result of the imposition of 10% GST in 1987 hence rendering the $20 value obsolete. So the departure charge went from $2 in 1981 to $22 within 6 years
