Issued February 1992
Sunset Over Scott's Hut
Ross Sea Iceberg
The design of the two $50 cards were printed on top of
unsold stocks of the
$50 Satellite Card, hence the same control numbers
as the Satellite card. It is the first time that an old issue
officially overprinted with a completely new design. The surface of the
overprints is matt, as opposed to the normal high gloss. Care should be
taken when handling
these cards as the designs are very easily chipped
around the edges.
The $50 Ice Cave is known with the picture upside down, putting the
notch on the left hand side.
Illustrated below are the reverse
of the four cards.
Loose cards were only available for sale at Scott Base. Other than some
of the $50 cards being made available in the folder illustrated below,
the four cards were
only available to local collectors in the
Collector Pack NZ-CP-1.
Below is an image of a numbered plaque
(25 produced) that was sold at auction in 1994.
