These coments below show how difficult it can be to 'expertise and /or categorise yourself. This certificate has opened a interesting discussion - The "mixed perfs" description by Bob Odenweller versus (Phillips "Downunder") thoughts as "irregular compound perfs" is likely to be due to different definitions used in the US versus NZ.

If you are going to collect early NZ you should read Ken McNaught's article in the RPSNZ past NZSC publication. Relevant pages now added to the reference section on this website.

Phillips thoughts are as quoted -  

"Leaving definitions aside compare the top perfs, genuine rotary perf 10, to the right hand perfs. Big difference. I've also looked through a number of rotary perf 10 stamps in my collection and the variations you see on your stamp just do not occur. Given the design and method of operation of the rotary machine I can't see any way those variations could occur. 

This is just my opinion and the certificate you have is Bob Odenweller's opinion and I know that most people, including me up until this example, would happily accept the opinion of an acknowledged expert in the field."

This SG.133 is one of the "Retouched Positions" above Row 18. The stamp characteristics are a blotchy overall appearance in the pre-touch state, with least affected lines above the left shoulder. Initial retouching was effective, with graver slips leaving lines in the first "E" of "PENCE" and the "P" of "POSTAGE" . Later wear affected all but the left side and showed the deeper cuts.
