[The Colonial Agents requisitioned stamps of these values 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 & despatched but were never issued: see Eaton at pp431-436]
