Methods of Officially Sealing Mail in New Zealand

Methods of Officially Sealing Mail in New Zealand

Introduction

This is a new exhibit. It follows the work that I have done with Dr Allan Craig in categorizing and publishing the various forms of Officially Sealing that has been done over the years. To date, there have been 5 articles published in “The New Zealand Stamp Collector” with 2 or 3 more to come.

This exhibit shows the different methods over the years of the New Zealand Post Office and New Zealand Post of Officially Sealing correspondence that has bee not sealed correctly, has been opened for “Return to Sender” or has been damaged in the post for whatever reason. It also shows the different methods and types of Censor labels, and Compulsorily Registered labels.
