Aitutaki to New Zealand
May 15, 1929

The Cook Islands group which includes Aitutaki is spread
out over a large area of the Pacific northeast of New Zealand.

This cover, albeit philatelic, was franked with
two stamps based on similar designs used in Raratonga.
The two stamps are penny black and green
most probably from the 1927 issue (SG 30).
Gibbons values these stamps on cover 6 times or more the value of used singles.
