Old but New - New Zealand 1981


Thanks to Daniel from Spain for send this serie from New Zealand (1981).

The "NZ Life Insurance" stamps have a rich history. All began in 1891 with a serie of 6 stamps that had the honor of be the first "postal stamps" with a lighthouse on it.
90 years after, New Zealand ended this family of stamps with the serie that shown at the begining.
