Illustrated below is an example of the halfpenny issue from the 1883-1897 set. The set values ran from a halfpenny (yellow-green) to a 5 Shilling (lilac). Only the Halfpenny values were overprinted for official use in 1890-91 and two types of overprint were used. Type 1 with slender letters that measured 17-17and a half mm long. Type 2 in bolder letters measured 15-16 mm. The example below is of type 2 overprint.
