The first varieties (419a1 - 419f1) come from the initial coil printings and either have Air Ambulance printed on the backing paper (as shown above) or 'Sprintpak - SNP' and a square box on the back of the backing paper. These stamps have a phosphor frame which appears pink under ultraviolet light and is either shaped to fit the border design on the stamp or as a rectangle.

The second varieties (419a2 - 419f2) come from the numerous booklets issued and either have a rectangular phosphor frame or are printed on phosphor coated paper - depending on the booklet they originate from.



Varieties 419c3 and 419i1 originate from scenic booklets containing two 40 cent Tory Channel stamps - the stamp in row two column one and shown above on the left is printed correctly with 'Tory Channel / Malborough Sounds', the second stamp in row two column three is missing the 'Malborough Sounds' label as shown above on the right.



The third variety (419a3, 419b3, 419c4, 419d3, 419e3 and 419f3) were printed in April and December 2000 at short notice by Southern Colour Print on phopshor coated paper of two different thicknesses with no printing on the backing paper.

Some catalogues include the 1996 AirPost Booklet stamp, the $1.10 self adhesive 2000 Scenic Definitives stamp and the 10 and 90 cent 2004 Scenic Definitives stamps under this issue.
