Nauru #49-57 2d-3/3d 1963-1965 Definitive Issue & 1965 Anzac Issue, Complete VFNH Sets
Complete VFNH sets of the 1963-1965 definitives, plus the 1965 Anzac Issue, all printed on different papers, showing varying degrees of fluorescence, ranging from dead to hibrite.
These stamps were printed by the Reserve Bank of Australia and thus will mirror Australian issues of the period, in terms of the varieties that exist. Most of the engraved stamps are found on dull paper, but starting in 1965, many of the Australian issues can be found on fluorescent paper. The photogravure issues are usually all fluorescent from the front, but on the back the fluorescence ranges from dull to hibrite. It is not known which varieties exist, or do not exist on this issue, but the picture taken under UV shows what is included with this lot.
