Fruit Inspection Fee

For information on each individual stamp, please click on the stamp description (in red)




From 1936 greding standards were adopted for pip fruit. A levy was introduced on all cases of fruit offered for sale to fund the scheme and fruit inspection. These stamps are frequently found damaged as they were normally fixed firmly to the fruit containers in an attempt to prevent fraudulent reuse.


Most examples of these stamps are uncancelled without gum. This means that they have probably been used as it was normal for these stamps not to have any form of cancellation.
