New Zealand 1996 Health Miniature Sheet with the Teddy Bear error appearing twice in the sheet. This has been overprinted with the CAPEX '96 logo thus missing the "SC 439" number at top. This miniature sheet was immediately withdrawn as the design caused an outcry because the baby should have been facing the rear of the car to comply with safety regulations. Only a few have been recorded on the open market & these were linked back to the printers, Enschede, in Holland who gave them to visiting VIP's. Fresh MUH with normal for comparison. Michel catalogues it at €12,000 & Len Jury at NZ$25,000.
