The following was the issue to postmasters of the tercentenary postage stamps :
Denominations. Quantities. Value.1 cent .. 2,000,000 $ 10,000 001 " .. 22,530,000 225,300 002 " .. 35,100,000 702,000 005 " .. 1,200,000 60,000 007 " .. 700,000 49,000 0010 " .. 500,000 50,000 0015 " .. 300,000 45,000 0020 " .. 304,200 60,840 00Totals.. .. .. 62,634,200 $1,202,140 00
The department has no knowledge whether the stamps in question have all been sold, as during their issue the ordinary postage stamps were also on sale, both issues being in use as preferred by the public. The proceeds derived from the sale of stamps of the two issues were not kept separately, but treated as arising from a common source. It is, therefore, impossible to state to what extent the issue of the Tercentenary postage stamps may have affected the ordinary revenue. At the ordinary period fixed by the department for squaring these accounts, we may be able to give the approximate value.
