Last updated May 19, 2019 Documents with Both U.S. and Non-U.S. Revenue Stamps Affixed

One of the most interesting and elusive types of revenue documents to try and find are documents with both U.S. and non-U.S. revenue stamps affixed. They are much more difficult to find than one would expect. Cross-border transactions, transactions with multiple steps or stages each taking place in different countries... Examples from the Civil War and immediate post-Civil War era (1862-1870s) are much more scarce than those from the Spanish-American War Tax era (1898-1901). 20th century examples are not exactly abundant either.

If you have any examples of U.S. and non-U.S. revenue stamps used on the same document for trade or sale, please contact me.
