I think that the two stamps are not similar.

Lou wrote: I agree the two “stamp” painting seem dissimilar, but I’m sure the designer was only putting rough suggestions of the # 871b stamp on the enveloper, and not going for accurate reproduction.  I don’t think he expected anyone to try and identify the stamps— why would anyone be that crazy?

150 Years of New Zealand Stamps 1855 - 1905

#1 Inside #2003: New Zealand #1O

1855 Full Face Queen - A consignment of New Zealand's first-ever stamps, the 'London Prints' of the 'Full Face Queens', was sent to New Zealand from England and entered circulation on 20 July 1855. In keeping with British tradition, they featured a portrait of a youthful Queen Victoria.

#P1 Inside #2004: New Zealand #P1O

1873 Newspaper - By 1873, the Government had begun printing the country's stamps through the 'Stamp Printing Branch', part of the Government Printing Office. The halfpenny 'Newspaper' stamp of that year was the first featuring the Queen's portrait side-on, produced specifically to cover the fee for newspaper deliveries.

#OY5 Inside #2005: New Zealand #OY5O

1891 Government Life - In 1891, a difference of opinion over franking charges between the Government Life Insurance Department and the Post Office led to New Zealand's longest-lasting 'unofficial' stamps, and one of the first examples of postal advertising. The Government Life stamps - distinctive for their lighthouse image - were valid only for that Department's postal transactions.

1898 Pictorial (Mount Cook) - A notice in the New Zealand Gazette on 20 March 1895, announcing a competition for a new stamp design, attracted entries from some 2,400 designers. The winning collection - New Zealand's first pictorial stamp issue, included a number of our scenic landmarks as well as a Maori war canoe, a kea and a kaka.

#99 Inside #2007: New Zealand #99P

1901 Universal Postage - The arrival in 1901 of 'universal penny postage' (for domestic and international mail) heralded a new age of letter writing. Halving the previous two-penny postal rate galvanised New Zealanders to write letters, and they rapidly became the preferred method of communication.

1906 One Penny The New Zealand Exhibition (claret) - Printed originally in this colour for The New Zealand International Exhibition of Arts and Industries in Christchurch, this issue was subsequently reprinted in vermilion. Just one sheet of these original One Penny Clarets were accidentally made available at the Exhibition. Stamps from that sheet are now highly sought after by collectors.

#B3 Inside #2009: New Zealand #B3O

1931 One Penny Health (Red Boy) - New Zealand health stamps were first issued in 1929, however it was this issue two years later that came to symbolise the country's health stamp issues worldwide. Despite the beautiful designs, this stamp and its accompanying Two Pence Blue sold considerably less than the earlier, or indeed later, issues - probably because of the effects of the Depression.

#C7 Inside #2010: New Zealand #C7O

1935 Threepence Airmail - Airmail came into its own in New Zealand in the 1930s. This set, the second issued by New Zealand, features the 'Faith in Australia'piloted by Lieutenant Ulm landing at Bell Block Aerodrome in New Plymouth on 12 April 1934 after completing the first official air mail flight between Australia and New Zealand.

#256 Inside #2011: New Zealand #256O

1946 Ninepence Peace - Southern Alps from Chapel Window - This beautiful stamp, part of a set released to celebrate the onset of peace, is striking for its wonderful viewpoint, looking out from the window of the Waiho Gorge chapel to the Southern Alps and the splendour of the Franz Joseph Glacier.

#301 Inside #2012: New Zealand #301O

1954 Ten Shilling Queen Elizabeth II - With the passing of King George VI, New Zealand issued a new definitive issue to commemorate the accession of Queen Elizabeth II to the throne. The stamp was the highest value of the four issued for the occasion. In fact, this was New Zealand's first ever stamp of this value to be issued just for postage.

1965 50th Anniversary of the Gallipoli Landing - The first stamps to commemorate the bravery and fortitude of the Australian and New Zealand forces at Gallipoli were released in 1936. Twenty-two years later, the Returned Services Association suggested the 50th anniversary of the landings be recognised with a special stamp issue. Two stamps were released, with the 5d's red poppy commemorating the ANZACs' later service and sacrifices in France and Belgium.

1988 Round Kiwi - The story of the kiwi and its journey to becoming an internationally recognised symbol of New Zealand dates back to the late 19th century, when the South Canterbury Battalion and the Hastings Rifle Volunteers began featuring it on their badges. In 1988 it was the obvious - and perhaps the only acceptable - image for the first round stamp ever issued by New Zealand Post.

#987-992 Inside #2019: New Zealand #989O

1990 The Achievers (Katherine Sheppard) - Kate Sheppard was one of six New Zealanders recognised in the 1990 'The Achievers' stamp issue. This courageous woman was the leader and inspiration behind the late-19th-century suffragette movement, whose determined efforts resulted in New Zealand becoming the first country in the world to give women the right to vote - introducing universal suffrage in 1893.

#1219 Inside #2020: New Zealand #1219P

1994 Maori Myths (Maui) - Of all the Maori myths, the story of Maui fishing up New Zealand is one of the most well known. While fishing at a secret spot, Maui hooked a giant creature on his line, and with the help of his brothers hauled it to the surface - thus 'landing' the North Island (Te Ika A Maui - the fish of Maui). According to legend, the Island's mountains and valleys are blows the brothers landed on the creature to subdue it.

2003-NZ-Rugby Inside #2021: New Zealand #1878O

2003 100 Years of New Zealand Test Rugby - New Zealand's philatelic heritage would not be complete without a tribute to our world-famous sporting heroes - the indomitable All Blacks. Since the first official 'test' between New Zealand and Australia in 1903, the team has come to represent everything great about this small country - our independence, our innovation and our willingness to tackle challenges many others may think impossible.

80th Anniversary of Children’s Health stamps

New Zealand Post has been a proud supporter of Children’s Health Camps since 1929. Every year, we’ve issued a range of stamps, with each stamp carrying a surcharge that is then donated to the Health Camps to help them in their work. In 2009 we celebrate the 80th anniversary of Children’s Health stamps with three new designs that each tell a story using an image of a stamp from the past.

#B151 Inside #B193: New Zealand #B151O

50c + 10c surcharge – gummed

The 1996 Children’s Health issue took a new direction, aligning its message with a campaign entitled ‘Children’s Health – Road Safety’. The issue proved controversial, with feedback on the design (and particularly on the use of a child restraint seat) leading to a new design and a complete reprint. Unfortunately, a small quantity of the incorrectly designed stamps found its way into the market.

The 1932 ‘Hygiea’ stamp was the first to be issued with the surcharge inscribed for ‘Health’ rather than ‘Charity’ – although the image of the Goddess of Health attracted more attention, generating considerable controversy in the philatelic journals of the day. The first two sheets to come off the printing press were presented to the Governor-General of New Zealand, Lord Bledisloe, when he paid an official visit to the Children’s Health Camp in Otaki.

In 1943, New Zealand’s first triangular stamps were issued – an immensely popular innovation that led to long queues at Post Offices throughout the country on the day they were issued. The triangular stamp for our 80th anniversary celebration features Her Majesty Queen (then Princess) Elizabeth II. It was one of two stamps issued in 1943, the other depicting Her Royal Highness Princess Margaret.

50th Anniversary of New Zealand Christmas Stamps

#353 1960 Inside #2332: New Zealand #353O

Stamps based on classical paintings have been popular throughout the years. The very first Christmas stamp depicted Rembrandt’s painting ‘The Adoration of the Shepherds’. Painted in 1646, it’s an intimate scene in which the shepherds kneel before the crib of baby Jesus.

#465 1970 Inside #2333: New Zealand #465P

In the past 50 years, New Zealand Christmas stamps have showcased various stained glass windows from New Zealand churches. The window from the First Presbyterian Church in Invercargill featured on the 1970 Christmas stamp, and now appears on the $1.20 stamp.

#692 1979 Inside #2334: New Zealand #692O

Christmas in New Zealand has been a prevalent theme, and the 1979 Christmas stamp featured a Pohutukawa tree in bloom along the Thames-Coromandel coast. With its brilliant display of red flowers in the summer, it is often referred to as the New Zealand Christmas tree.

#790 1983 Inside #2335: New Zealand #790O

Modern interpretations of the traditional Christmas story have regularly recurred in our Christmas stamp issues. The Southern Cross and the Star of Bethlehem were depicted on the 1983 Christmas stamp and are the focus of this year’s $2.40 stamp.

#1672 2000 Inside #2336: New Zealand #1672O

Continuing the traditional Christmas theme, the Virgin Mary and baby Jesus were beautifully illustrated on the 2000 Christmas stamp, and nowappear on the $2.90 stamp.
