New Zealand-An 1893-3 Penny Postage Stamp-With Advert on Back-Illustrated

Illustrated below is a Queen Victoria 3 Penny (yellow) stamp with an advert for "Sunlight Soap" on the back.
Originally the adverts were horizontal but in the subsequent issues the adverts were printed vertically. The base of the advert sitiuated at the base of the vertical stamp. Lettering for the adverts was brown-red or sepia. Adverts on the backs of stamps were discontinued after 1895.
