Greenpeace Local Stamps

Greenpeace has for several years issued cinderella or local post stamps for use on their campaign support vessels and also in the earlier years from their Antarctic Base situated in the Ross Dependency.

These stamps pay the cost of postage (or local carriage) on postal articles from the vessels concerned  to the nearest regular postal collection point. We have at times posted letters on board Greenpeace vessels and have had them delivered via this method. These stamps also raise funds for Greenpeace conservation tasks as well as publicising their projects.   Stamps are denominated in New Zealand Dollars and have been issued through their Auckland Headquarters. Sheets have 4 different $1.25 stamps giving a face value of NZ$5.

Our prices for these as usual are all quoted in US Dollars.
