1978 Health Stamps 2.8.1978
The 1978 Health Stamp Issue comprised two stamps - one marking the 50th anniversary of the issue of the first Health stamp and the other recognising the work of the National Heart Foundation.
Each stamp had a surcharge which helped finance New Zealand's six permanent health camps maintained by the Children's Health Camps Board.
10c + 2c. This stamp features a reproduction of the design of the first Health stamp issued in 1929. A nurse is depicted on this stamp with the slogan "Help stamp out Tuberculosis".
12c + 2c. This stamp recognises the work of the National Heart Foundation and features a heart operation in progress together with the Foundation's emblem.
Thank you Maria for this very nice FDC.
