Is there any reference material that lists the withdrawal dates of the issued stamps?

There were 3 printings, 8 May, 28 May and 3 September. The 28 May is deemed to be part of the 1st printing, being needed because of the high spoilage rate of the 8 May printing.
I am not aware of a definitive date for the last sale but it should have been the same for all countries ie. 31.12.1935.
I can send you a copy of the relevant article in the Flagstaff - the specialist publication of the KGV Silver Jubilee Society if you like.

Thank you for your response, however I must confess that I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.
To put things in perspective, my main interest is Papua New Guinea.
Every stamp issued from 1952 onwards has an issue date and a withdrawal date.
Commemoratives have a very short life span, Definitives last until the next issue, which could be many years.
It is this information for Nauru that I was seeking, specifically post WW2.
