Where to obtain these stamps

Booklets of New Zealand Mail stamps are not always easy to find, even while they are current. The locations listed below are those where various series of these stamps have at some point been available at face value. Normally only one printing (and not necessarily the most recent) of the set in question was available.

Any information about other locations where New Zealand Mail stamps can be purchased, or corrections to these listings, would be greatly appreciated. Please report them to me at the contact page.
