1902 Postage Due
Postage due stamps were used in New Zealand from the 1st of December 1899
to speed up the collection of short-paid postage. The stamps were applied
by the post office delivering the mail. The value that was charged was
normally double the amount of postage the mail was short by.

probably as a result of plate wear, the low value postage due stamps were
redesigned in 1902 while high values from the 1899 issue continued in use
