Following a decision to identify the exact revenue derived from the Morocco postal service, separate stamps were needed for the Morocco Agencies. This requirement further became necessary because of a Revision of Fees Ordinance in Gibraltar, which required all fees to be collected in Sterling, while the Morocco Agencies continued to use Spanish currency. This led to the introduction of Gibraltar stamps with 'Morocco Agencies' overprints.
