The 1933 Health stamp was intended to depict a winding path leading through sand dunes to a beach as the sun broke through early morning cloud - the 'Pathway to Health'. Unfortunately, the suns rays were shortened and the etching process produced incomplete lines in some positions on the plate which disrupted the intended cloud pattern.

Around 261,000 of these stamps were sold.
