New Zealand-2 Varieties of an 1898 2 Pence Halfpenny Pictorial Postage Stamp-Illustrated

Shown below are the two varieties of the 1898 stamp issue of Mt Earnslaw and Lake Wakatipu. The stamp was first inscribed "Lake Wakitipu" and issued in a sky-blue then issued again with the correct inscpription "Lake Wakatipu" in blue. The re-printed design was also slightly modified with the Mount Earnslaw inscription along the bottom left out and "Postage and Revenue" formerly under the "New Zealand" inscription put in place of "Mount Earnslaw".
