Production Date
Three sets of petrol ration coupons. Set one includes 12 coupons (no.s 13-24) printed in black ink on red/orange each valued for 3 gallons of petrol, dated 1947-48. Set 2 includes 6 coupons (no.s 29-31 and 34-36) for 4 gallons of petrol each printed in pale green with black ink with no date. The lack of a date suggest these stamps were earlier than the others. Set 3 includes 9 coupons (no.s 28-36) printed in 1942 each for 4 gallons of petrol, printed in black on dark green printed paper. The 1942 stamps have all been used (stamped with "Motor Registration Auckland 29 Jun 1942").
