Census of 1st-3rd Issue (and other)
Revenue Stamp Double Impressions

(Last updated on May 26, 2017)

This page is my attempt to establish a census of 1st-3rd issue double impressions. I have pulled examples from various auction archives, the Philatelic Foundation archive, dealer stocks, my own collection, and submissions from other collectors.

For reference purposes, I am also including possible and partial double impressions.

Scott catalog numbers for double impressions have changed over time, so I am listing them by the base Scott number, but then including mention of the different numbers the stamps have been catalogued under.

If you own, or know of, any 1st-3rd issue double impressions not shown on this page, please contact me.
