Hutt PNC Series 101, S/N 128 of 350, Set of Six PNCs, "New Zealand 1974 Proof Set First Day of Issue, " KM# PS15. This Philatelic-Numismatic Combinations (PNC) set was made by Hutt Commemoratives.They were part of the Hutt Coin Company in Lower Hutt, New Zealand. They made PNCs from 1970 until sometime in 1977 when they became part of the Pacific Coin Company.
That company, making PNCs as Pacific Commemoratives, last issued Hutt-numbered PNCs in 1978. This PNC set consists of six PNCs containing the seven coins from the New Zealand 1974 proof set (KM# PS15). The coins were made at the Royal Australian Mint at Canberra; and the number of proof sets made was 8,000. Each cover has one or more New Zealand stamps, with at least one stamp on each cover matching the denomination of the coin in that PNC. Hutt originally issued their PNCs with vinyl envelopes to protect them.However, the vinyl used deteriorated and could damage the PNCs. This PNC was removed from the vinyl envelope and it has been stored in a glassine envelope. Another problem that Hutt had with their PNCs was that the glue eventually soaked through the front and/or back of the envelope.
That glue was used to affix the sealed coins in position in the PNCs. Therefore, a number of the PNCs show the glue. These PNCs contain the following stamps. New Zealand Coat of Arms and Queen Elizabeth II Bust. Passchenendaele Ab Class Steam Locomotive.
The coins in the PNCs were removed from the original case and then sealed in Pliofilm (or similar) before they were inserted into each of the envelopes. The coins contained in the mint set are.
