Here is an abstract of an article titled 'Red and black interpostal accountancy marks' by John K. Courtis, published in the journal 'Accounting forum' v.28,no.4, p.385-402 (Dec 2004).

The volume of interpostal mail increased by several thousand percent during the 19th century. Countries with bilateral revenue sharing agreements, including the Australian colonies, used four types of Accountancy Mark systems from 1843 to 1876. Marks on interpostal mail showed the amount of shared revenue between two or more postal entities. Accountancy Marks were shorthand notations for journal entry instructions to record amounts owing to, or amounts owing from other postal authorities. For prepaid mail, the calculation of shared revenues to be paid to the destination country was marked in red on outgoing mails, and for unpaid mail, the amount owed to the sender country for its share of unpaid mail was marked in black. Red was used to indicate a credit entry in the sending country account, and black was used to indicate a debit entry for an amount owed to the sending country. During the 33-year period, the system was changed from the recording of a simple manuscript or handstamp numeral marking, to PD, PP, and P abbreviation handstamps. The system was then modified to include Articles handstamps and Letter or Way Bills. Finally, a system of country-designated handstamps was used with specific amounts due. The paper supplies illustrations of how Accountancy Mark calculations were performed, and discusses the cost and time disadvantages and reliability issues of the Accountancy Mark system together with linkages to accounting.

Sc#273 1950.
Cannot find printed information for the surcharge overprint.
Guess:
Postage Rates on Printed matter, and Commercial papers had been increased to 1.5d circa 1950, I am assuming current stamp values had been exhausted, and a stop gap was needed.



Genesis of the design of the left and right hand margins ?

From the NZ Post site:
1950 Sovereigns Provisional

Due to an increase in postal rates on 16 July 1950, it was realised that the stocks of the 1 1/2d value stamp with portrait of King George VI would be inadequate to satisfy future demand for this value.

Issue information

An urgent order was lodged for a further printing of this stamp, but because there was an inevitable delay in the receipt of the new printing from England, it was necessary to produce a provisional 1 1/2d stamp.

The New Zealand Government Printer was instructed to produce a stamp in the 'Arms' style. Printings were made from a plate with no value indicated and the actual denomination was applied by a second operation. The 'Arms' stamp design was completed by H L Richardson in 1929. His design incorporated the New Zealand Coat of Arms, however because of the confined space he depicted his own interpretation of the subject, which varied considerably from the version authorised by Royal warrant in 1911. An error was made in the design whereby the New Zealand flag is depicted instead of the Union Jack.
