Overprinted 'REVENUE' for fiscal use:

Besides the 1 p red, I have also seen a 1 p red and black and a 2 p grey and lilac with this 'REVENUE' overprint. The 3 p and 1 Sh should also exist with this overprint. A surcharge should also exist: 6 p on 1 Sh.
Furthermore the 3 p value exists with overprint 'Revenue' (small letters).
