Over the past 15 years there has been an increasing interest in New Zealand Revenue Stamps as many traditional postage stamp collectors look for new collecting challenges.
The New Zealand Revenues website was established to provide collectors with a comprehensive online reference source for stamps from "The Back of the Book", complete with colour scans, up-to-date market information relating to sales of scarcer items, consolidated catalogue references from the 4 major listers of NZ Revenue Stamps, printing varieties for the specialist collector, an album to dispay your NZ Revenue collection in asn printed catalogues and guides for the specialist collector.
The development of this site is still in progress with new information and scans being added weekly, however once complete, users of this site will have available to them…
1. A reference source and colour scans of all stamps used for revenue purposes in
New Zealand. ----- Complete October 2012
2. A guide to the values of these stamps in the many conditions they exist --- Complete October 2012
3. A place to purchase examples of
New Zealand Revenue stamps ---- New Stamps added as they become available
4. A place to list any items you may have on your "Wants" list ---- Available Now. Please e-mail any stamps you would like added to the list to
5. For the first time the place to purchase exclusive publications such as....
