Here is my best explanation:

'cancel' is the definition.
(erasing is a kind of cancelling)

'times before end of issue' is the subsidiary indication.
'times' becomes 'eras' (era is a kind of time).
'before' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'end of' indicates one should take the final letters.
The final letter of 'issue' is 'e'.
'eras'+'e'='erase'
