Single $2.80 gummed stamp.
Through the years, New Zealand's supply of red poppies has been sourced both overseas and locally. With the help of disabled former servicemen in Auckland and Christchurch, the RSA began producing its own poppies in 1931. This example was produced by the RSA in the 1960s or ‘70s.
