The two lists below record:

  1. the clear date stamps on the 1d (1/-) NSW Charity stamp. Faint, smudged and incomplete date stamps are not included because of the difficulty in ascertaining their degree of genuineness;
  2. the known covers of the 1d (1/-) NSW Charity stamp used as a single franking on cover.

1. Date stamps on 1d (1/-) stamps.

As noted elsewhere, the stamps were only valid for postage up to 31 August 1897.
