RB4d

Alfred Tatem. Vertical bisect on a complete label for a trial size of 'Fish's Saratoga Asperient' prepared by George H. Fish & SOns, Saratoga Springs, New York. The regular size would have been taxed at 4 cents, hence the 2-cent tax on the trial size. Scott lists but does not price RB4d. This is the first example I have ever seen. I am aware of one other example, found by a New York collector approximately 40 years ago.

 

Scott # RB28p. Added December 17, 2017 at 18:17

RB28p

A. L. Howe for Arkansas Construction Co.. Not only a first day of tax usage, which are highly sought after, but also an illegal/improper usage, with RB28 2-cent proprietary battleship used instead of a documentary. A double whammy!

RO157a

Scott # RO157a, proprietary match stamp from D. M. Richardson, used illegally/improperly as a documentary on an 1867 handwritten receipt. Very scarce. Ex-Morrissey.

R112

Phillips & Jordan Iron Co.. Gorgeous Phillips & Jordan Iron Co. stock certificate, featuring an R112 with socked-on-the nose cancel at right along with a hammered matching embossed seal at left. What really takes this certificate to 11 is the manufacturing vignette at center. It may not be apparent in the scan, but it is printed in reflective metallic bronze, extremely unusual.

 

Scott # R15c. Added December 17, 2017 at 12:49

R15c

Jacob B. Ritter. This may very well be the largest ornate handstamp cancel I have ever seen, on a billhead from Jacob Ritter, 'importer of bolting cloths'. The branding in the cancel text matches the branding at upper left on the billhead. Gorgeous!

R24c

B. Baker, town clerk. An 1866 dog license from Brookline, Mass., with a dog's head vignette. Very uncommon document type. Reading the text of the statutes, it's clear that while while there were penalties for harming a licensed dog, society of the time had no love for unlicensed animals, which were to be killed on sight. The SPCA would not approve...

 

Scott # R23c. Added December 17, 2017 at 10:14

R23c

Indianapolis, Cincinnati & Lafayette Railroad Co.. Monthly railroad pass, taxed as an agreement (see language above stamp). There are some very beautiful railroad passes with RNs imprinted upon them, but they are incredibly expensive.

Scott # R115. Added December 17, 2017 at 9:50

R115

Louis Iken. 1872 3rd bill of exchange, New York to London, from Louis Iken (cotton broker), showing a complete strike of a large format device that Iken used to modify his business checks upon the break-up of his partnership (the bar obliterated the previous business name). Ex-Morrissey.

 

Scott # RG1. Added December 16, 2017 at 22:05

RG1

Office of the Collector of Internal Revenue. Silver Tax Form 2 indicating no profit on the transaction, and thus no tax due, yet 1 cent was required to be paid and a 1-cent silver tax stamp was affixed, in order to process the form. Unusual.

Mechanics' Bank. Scott #63, 1-cent Franklin used illegally as a revenue on a bank check with a great arm-and-hammer vignette in green. Tax was underpaid, as it should have been 2 cents.

 

Scott # R43a. Added December 16, 2017 at 11:05

R43a

The Hartford Fire Insurance Co.. Insurance premium receipt.

 

Scott # R18c. Added December 16, 2017 at 10:52
