These stamps exist with overprint 'CUSTOMS DUTY' for fiscal purposes (1 p, 2 p, 3 p, 4 p and 6 p). Also the 1 Sh green and black and 2 Sh brown and black exist with overprint 'PASS'.

Some of the above stamps also exist with overprint 'C.S.A.R' or perforation 'CSAR', they are all rare to very rare. These letters stand for 'Central South African Railway' and are actually railway stamps.
