A total of 14,876,880 stamps were invoiced between 6 July 1898 and 8 December 1900. The yellow colour does not vary significantly; brownish yellow shades are colour-changelings.

The earliest date on record is 4 February 1899, but at that stage the value only remained in force for some months. It was then placed in abeyance for several months, while stocks remaining of the 2d grey were disposed of.
