Although some collectors might frown on this sort of material, I recently created a new local post stamp picturing a bird for my very own Philosateleian Post. The non-rectangular trapezoidal design pictures an American flamingo. First day of issue is scheduled for June 22.
The Great Barrier Island pigeon post service was started after the sinking of the SS Wairarapa in October 1894 fesulting in loss of posts to the mainland. The first message of the pigeongram service was carried on May 14th 1897. In 1908 the service was ended when an undersea cable was installed. They might be considered as "semi-official" stamps They still come up on auctions even in multiples but prices have gone up considerably and need certification
