A 1 p stamp can be found with the overprint 'NOT FOR USE', this originates from a booklet issued in 1907, one stamp in this booklet was overprinted in this way. This stamp is rare in this condition:

With 'REVENUE NATAL' cancel

Several values exist ranging from 6 p to 20 Pounds.


Telegraph stamps

In 1881 special telegraph stamps were issued for Natal, they have the face of Queen Victoria and the inscription 'NATAL TELEGRAPHS'. The following values were issued: 1 p brown, 3 p red, 6 p olive, 1 Sh green, 2 Sh violet, 5 Sh blue, 10 Sh brown(?), 1 Pound brown and 5 Pounds orange.

There also exist some fiscal stamps with overprint 'TELEGRAPH' and surcharge (5 values, issued in 1902). I have no pictures of those right now.


Fournier forged cancel

The forger Fournier made a forged cancel 'POINT NATAL A MY 23 03' as shown in the next picture taken from a 'The Fournier album of philatelic forgeries':

If anybody knows on what stamp(s) this forged cancel was used, please contact me!
