Unissued. [The Colonial Agents requisitioned 2/6d & 10/- stamps from De La Rue. However, in 1882 Tasmania had authorised postal use of revenue stamps printed in the Colony. Hobart advised the Crown Agents of this fact & advised that the proposed stamps would be "useless". However, London knows best so they were printed and despatched but they were never issued: see Eaton at pp431-436]
