Some of these stamps were occasionally used as postage stamps. Many of them were sold to stamp collectors after their usage stopped with postal cancels (cancelled to order in 1900-01). This issue is quite confusing, I'm not sure if I have catalogued it correctly.

Even forgeries exist: Example, a Senf forgery, (the perforation is printed in red):
Some stamps could be used for postage and fiscal purposes, example:

1 p brown 2 Sh 6 p brown (1885) 2 Sh 6 p yellow (1885)
5 Pounds red and blue 6 Pounds blue and yellow 7 Pounds black and lilac 8 Pounds orange and blue 9 Pounds red and green (More values might exist)
Remark: most of these stamps are cancelled to order when found with a postal cancel.
Many values exist, also two different sizes of these stamp.

Reprints were made in 1891, they bear the overprint 'Reprint'. The shades of these reprints seems to be different from the originals, examples:
(Forged postal cancel on a genuine fiscal stamp of 1 Pound)
Many Beer Duty stamps were issued in the period 1880 to 1906. They are quite rare.
(Beer Duty stamp)
(Motor-Transfer on Stamp Duty, seems to be the only fiscal stamp with this overprint)
From 1927 onward, various stamp duty stamps were overprinted with 'CATTLE', examples:
