🇳🇿 New Zealand Post has revealed the miniature sheet which it will put on sale on 20 May 2020 which includes 6 pictures of teddy bears chosen from entries in its Bear Hunt photograph competition which the New Zealand public was asked to enter to capture the spirit of the people of New Zealand during its recent COVID-19 lockdown. The miniature sheet is in the same format as others released in the last year or two to commemorate events at short notice. The stamps are arranged so that there are 3 different vertically se-tenant stamps at either side of the miniature sheet.
As mentioned in Blog 1657 New Zealand Post will donate $3 from the sale of each sheet it sells to the New Zealand Red Cross “to support New Zealanders to stay at home and save lives”.
The issue was designed by Cam Price of New Zealand Post and printed (digitally?) by Collectables and Solutions Centre, Whanganui and is perforated 14.5. Rating:- ***. Not the greatest of issues but released with the best of motives. Rating:- ****.
