OTAGO

Maori Wars Cancellations

Otahuhu was the main military camp, mainly a tent camp, on the outskirts of Auckland. It was set up in March 1861 and could accommodate 3000 men. The distinctive obliterator was supplier mid 1862. 1d was the concession rate for soldiers and sailors provided certain conditions were met such as being counter signed by the officer in command.

The "4" obliterator  is similar and is "4 ONEHUNGA A", a different location at the head of the Manukau Harbour on the west coast but also associated with the Waikato Wars.

Southland "S"

SG115 2d blue plate II

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)

Temuka  "Star"

SG133, A2s(2), Scott. 40 the 2d Orange.

This stamp has one of the five obliterators of the Temuka office. Three of the five did not appear to last long. Temuka was using an obliterator with a large "T" in a circle of bars in February 1870, following earlier  use of the manuscript "T".

The manuscript was replaced with one known as the "Temuka Star" and is quite scarce. It is noted that thier was a similar star employed in Geraldine "No.8" in the Postage Stamps of NZ Vol.III pg 70.​

Davies Printing - Postal - 5th Oct 1965
SG. 113  -  CP. A2m ( 4 )  -  Scott. 32a​​

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.
