Stamp, Shipping - Ngaio
Stamp reading Ngaio from the shipping industry in Nelson. There were two ships called Ngaio owned the Anchor Shipping and Foundry Company. The first from 1921 to 1935 and the second from 1949 until 1953. This stamp could relate to either or both of them. The size of the stamp is consistent with those used to enter a ship's name on seaman's discharge papers. However it is unclear if this stamp was used aboard ship or a shipping company office.
