Notes: Four stamps from this set can also be found overprinted OFFICIAL: 3d Huias, 1/ Kaka, 2/ Milford and 5/ Mt Cook.
The 21/2d Wakatipu can also be found with the spelling variation "Wakitipu", These are not hard to find and are most commonly seen unused.
The 5/ Mt Cook is not scarce but it is difficult to find in good condition with a regular cancellation. Fiscally used embossed, circular "crown" cancels, or pen cancels are common and worth much less than catalogue value, One leading NZ dealer sells fiscally used copies for $35NZ which is less than 1/20th of the catalogue price. Also beware of "mint no gum" of this stamp as most are fiscally used with the pen cancel cleaned off.
