(22) Honey Seals PDF Print E-mail


These were taxes levied on the sales of honey to benefit the Primary Producers Marketing Division - PPMD (1938 – 1953), or the Honey Marketing Authority – HMA from 1953. These stamps are usually found uncancelled without gum. In January 1967 adhesive Honey Seals and imprinted honey pot lids were withdrawn.
