Stamp Booklets

1986 - 1987

Campbell Paterson Stanley Gibbons

For booklets W15 through to W23, there were two varieties of each issue.
The second of each had a purchase price 10% higher than the normal price and this was shown on the cover.
These booklets were sold in non-post office outlets, thereby allowing the vendor to collect a commission on the sale.

    From W21a until W48b New Zealand Post produced the booklets in joined blocks of 5.
This allowed a sheet of 50 stamps (10 x 5) to be used without having to separate them.
The blocks of 10 stamps would be separated when the five booklets were split.
This meant that some booklets in a particular issue would have nothing on the selvedge, others would have reprint kiwis, colour plate dots, or part printers imprint.
