The plain-bordered numerals are the only ones having inter- island on them, as they were gotten up to supply the requirements of the law of 1859, establishing inter-island postage. Uka Leta signifies postage, and not paid letter, or local tax. Many of these stamps are met with obliterated with pen strokes, which was the method of cancellation by captains of coasters and others when letters were conveyed outside of the Post Office, in accordance with the law.

No. 10 might properly be called an " error stamp," from the fact that inter-island rates require no such denomination as a 5-cent stamp, and must have occurred by the printers substituting the figure 5 for that of the 1 or 2 in the form that happened to be standing in the office.
