  1. These stamps as overprinted “CONTRACT NOTE” are all revenue stamps, mainly used on receipts of share trading. The first Contract Note overprints was on a KGV $40 value (but this is believed that this was first used in the KGVI period as this is the only value overprinted in KGV reign). There are about another 30 KGVI Contract Note stamps. QE reign has more stamps. I have not counted, but should be over 100 as there are at least 5 or 6 issues, plus other surcharges. The examples given were all in their 70s’ with no. 8 used in the 60s’.
