SG115 2d blue plate II

SG. 122  -  CP. A5h -  Scott. 36
​"W" hand stamp Waimea.

The postmark on the above 2d Blue is known as a "fish-tail" S. The "S" designates Southland. With Invercargill having the Chief Post Office for Southland this is where the postmark was applied. Southland Province was formed on 24th March 1861. It later rejoined Otago because of monetary problems, but Invercargill continued to be designated as a Chief Post Office.

At present I know of 4 examples on perforated chalons;

          1).  on a  SG117 p12.5 3d lilac
          2).  on a SG126 p10 1d brown
          3).  on a SG133 2d vermillion
          4).  My one on a SG115 2d blue plate II

All of the stamps were issued between 1866 to 1871. So preliminary results for "our" small reference group, supports the postmark being used between 1866 and 1871. (If anyone else has any stamps to add to this reference group I would love to hear fron you)

This cover has a very worn 2d blue used in October 1865 it is one of the final printing of Plate I, and interesting in that sense.

Peoples opinion is that, Plate II had arrived and printings made from it, but held in reserve until the very worn examples were sold out. Otherwise, they would have a lot of stamps (the worn ones) that nobody would want to buy if the new ones looked much better.
