This was a nice acquisition. The 2-cent Trans-Mississipis are findable on bank checks, and usually sell in the $100-200 range, but the other denominations are quite scarce used as revenues. This one is on a marriage license and certificate, paying the correct 10-cent tax. You can see the foxed impression of the stamp at top where it laid when the document was folded.
