Revenue Multiples

Another fun area to collect is revenue multiples: pairs, blocks, strips, etc. In fact, for imperf and part-perf 1st-issue revenues, the only real way to be sure that you do not have a trimmed or reperfed stamp is to obtain a multiple.

Scott # 63

63

Horizontal pair of Scott 63 illegally used as revenues. Unusual to find multiples.

 

Scott # 65

65

Just an incredible piece! Doubly illegal, with postage stamps used as revenues, and miscalculation of the tax owed. Two promissory notes (one year and two year) dated February 22, 1865, each for $450, with 15 randomly placed #65. The correct tax, five cents per $100 or part thereof, should have been 25 cents per note, or 50 cents, but the illegal attempted payment, 45 cents was based on the cumulative total of $900. The two receipts on the back are not taxable because they were on the same sheet of paper as the notes.

 

Scott # 281

281

Block of 4 with both manuscript and horizontal cut cancels. Improper usage of postage as revenue. Too bad it is not still on the original document.

 

Scott # 286

286

Pair and two singles of the 2-cent Trans-Mississippi used illegally as revenues on a fragment of a promissory note.

 

Scott # L29

L29

Mint NH block of 72 of the 60-cent Ohio Wine and Mixed Beverage tax stamp, originally issued in 1939. Catalog value shown is for 72 singles.

 

Scott # R1a

R1a

 

Scott # R1b

R1b

Vertical pair. Warren Stetson was the purchasing agent and later the paymaster for the Troy and Greenfield Railroad, in North Adams Massachusetts. Not listed in Tolman/Shellabear. Green ink cancels are exceptionally scarce.

 

Scott # R1b

R1b

Vertical strip of 5.

 

Scott # R1b

R1b

Vertical pair. Part perf multiples are quite scarce on CDVs.

 

Scott # R1b

R1b

Vertical pair.

 

Scott # R1c

R1c

Vertical strip of 3. The middle stamp in the strip is a short transfer.

 

Scott # R3b

R3b

Horizontal pair. Exhibits the quality-control issues from the 1860s. Unfortunately it is of minimal value due to all the faults. Very similar to lot 1912 in the Joyce collection, 1991.

 

Scott # R3c

R3c

Horizontal pair.

 

Scott # R3c

R3c

Vertical block of 6.

 

Scott # R3c

R3c

Wholesale druggists. Horizontal pair.

 

Scott # R3c

R3c

Horizontal pair.

 

Scott # R3c

R3c

The manuscript cancels are pretty mundane. Of greater interest is the stencil backstamp. I do not know if it was ever used as a stamp cancel. Ex-Baryla.

 

Scott # R3c

R3c

Mint with full gum. Horizontal block of 6.

 

Scott # R3c

R3c

Choice strikes of this 3-line cancel. Ex-Baryla.

 

Scott # R3c

R3c

 

Scott # R3c

R3c

Horizontal strip of 3.

 

Scott # R3c

R3c

Wonderful item! The Walker & Taylor 10-line printed cancel is scarcer on the 1c denomination than the 2c. Also, the 1870 dated cancel is MUCH tougher than the 1866. Lastly, this is the first multiple I have ever seen with a Walker & Taylor cancel.

 

Scott # R4c

R4c

Block of 4.

 

Scott # R5a

R5a

Nice margins.

 

Scott # R5c

R5c

Horizontal pair with imprint capture.

 

Scott # R5c

R5c

Vertical pair showing a plate scratch running diagonally through both stamps.

 

Scott # R6c

R6c

Block of 4. Cancel is Tolman C-12A.

 

Scott # R6c

R6c

Plate blocks of 1st issue revenues are quite scarce. Granted, it has been very heavily reinforced around the edges. There are blue threads on 2 of the 24 stamps, but the PF has determined that it is not silk paper, so the block is not R6d. 2014 Philatelic Foundation Certificate.

 

Scott # R6c

R6c

Horizontal pair.

 

Scott # R6c

R6c

Tolman N-1B-2.

 

Scott # R7a

R7a

Horizontal pair with right stamp exhibiting the foreign entry of the 1c above and outside the top numerals. Catalog value shown is that of a normal pair.

 

Scott # R9a

R9a

1989 Philatelic Foundation certificate. 2-cent Express imperf pair used illegally as postage on cover, and then a 3-cent Washington (Scott #65) pasted over as actual postage. Green paid 3 handstamp cancel.

 

Scott # R9c

R9c

Block of 24 (8x3) on a document fragment. According to The Curtis Collection census, this is the second largest known block of R9c.

 

Scott # R9c

R9c

Precanceled block of 4.

 

Scott # R10 c

R10 c

Unusal combination of revenues: horizontal pair of R10c, R3c single (nominally illegal usage), and R24a imperforate, paying the 10-cent tax on this fire insurance policy.

 

Scott # R10c

R10c

Horizontal block of 6.

 

Scott # R10d

R10d

Horizontal pair. Valued as two singles, as Scott does not list pair or block of 4 values for silk papers.

 

Scott # R11c

R11c

Lovely exhibit-quality multiple, a horizontal block of 12.

 

Scott # R12c

R12c

Per the Curtis Census, this is only the ninth reported multiple of the 2-cent Playing Cards orange.

 

Scott # R13b

R13b

While R13b part perf pairs are not particularly scarce, truly mint examples with original gum are. The white spots on the reverse are not thins, but rather some gum voids.

 

Scott # R13b

R13b

2005 Philatelic Foundation certificate. Vertical pair.

 

Scott # R13c

R13c

Horizontal pair, the right stamp being the position above the T13a major double transfer, exhibiting DT elements across the bottom.

 

Scott # R14c

R14c

Horizontal pair on CDV. There are only a handful of R14c multiples known. California CDVs are also quite scarce.

 

Scott # R15c

R15c

Block of 4 with perfectly centered handstamp cancel.

 

Scott # R15c

R15c

 

Scott # R15c

R15c

Block of 4.

Very scarce cancel.

 

Scott # R15c

R15c

Two overlapping singles with nice oval cancel on payroll.

 

Scott # R15c

R15c

Large format oval handstamp cancel. Agricultural dealers.

 

Scott # R15d

R15d

L-shaped strip of 3. Top left stamp is the T15 major double transfer listed by Scott. The bottom right stamp is a different unlisted major double transfer. Here is a closeup of the two DT areas side by side to compare them.

 

Scott # R19b

R19b

Vertical pair.

 

Scott # R19b

R19b

Tolman N-11B. Nice contrasting red cancel on a horizontal pair.

 

Scott # R20c

Vertical pair.

 

Scott # R22c

R22c

Verical pair.

 

Scott # R22c

R22c

Scott # R22c

Vertical pair.

 

Scott # R22c

R22c

Horizontal strip of 5 with minor double transfers throughout.

 

Scott # R22d

R22d

2005 Philatelic Foundation certificate. Vertial pair. Several silk fibers also visible on obverse of stamps.

 

Scott # R23d

R23d

Interesting misperf oddity. At first glance, it looks like a part perf pair, imperf vertically, but there is a line of blind perfs down the right side of the left stamp. Also, it is silk paper, so it cannot be a part perf.

 

Scott # R24a

R24a

Horizontal pair.

 

Scott # R24a

R24a

Vertical block of 6.

 

Scott # R24a

R24a

Horizontal pair.

 

Scott # R24b

R24b

Full vertical strip of 10 (the longest vertical strip possible). Note the poor quality control in the perforations from top to bottom.

 

Scott # R24b

R24b

Vertical pair.

 

Scott # R24c

R24c

Horizontal pair. Dry goods firm.

 

Scott # R24c

R24c

Very common stamp with low catalog value (the catalog value quoted above is for a block of 4 + a pair). However, given the normal poor quality control and centering found on these, the centering of the stamps in this block is actually superb.

 

Scott # R24c

R24c

Block of 4.

 

Scott # R24c

R24c

Vertical pair with freak perfs.

 

Scott # R25a

R25a

Vertical pair.

 

Scott # R25a

R25a

Interesting document fragment containing a block of 6 plus 3 singles of R25a, a pair of R75c and an R15c single. An enterprising clerk partially prescored (precut actually) the R25a for easy separation at time of use. All of the R25a are valued as singles, rather than multiples (which would be considerably more valuable).

 

Scott # R25b

R25b

Vertical pair.

 

Scott # R25b

R25b

Vertical pair.

 

Scott # R26c

R26c

Mint with full original gum. Full OG mint 1st-3rd issue revenues are quite scarce; the vast majority sold as 'mint' or 'unused' were actually used but uncancelled stamps that were sweated or soaked from documents. Scott does not price them mint, only used. The catalog value shown is for a used block of 4.

 

Scott # R27a

R27a

Vertical pair with jumbo margins on all sides. If not for a few small flaws, this would be a 'moon money' piece.

 

Scott # R27b

R27b

Vertical pair.

 

Scott # R27b

R27b

Vertical strip of 3.

 

Scott # R27b

R27b

Two strips of 3 of R27b, plus several singles and a strip of 3 of R23c on a promissory note.

 

Scott # R27b

R27b

Very scarce boxed version of the 'SdeV' cancel. One normally finds either circular or large SdeV letter cancels from Simon de Visser.

 

Scott # R27b

R27b

Vertical pair.

 

Scott # R27b

R27b

Vertical pair.

 

Scott # R27b

R27b

R27b horizontal pair, along with 4 singles of R33c, paying the 50-cent tax on an 1863 warranty deed.

 

Scott # R27c

R27c

Despite the muddy impression of the block, the bottom right stamp appears to be the double transfer at bottom variety.

 

Scott # R27c

R27c

Double transfer. Listed but unpriced in Scott. Horizontal pair with both stamps showing doubling at left and bottom.

 

Scott # R27c

R27c

Horizontal strip of 3.

 

Scott # R28c

R28c

Block of 4. Cross precancel plus manuscript cancel. Full gum.

 

Scott # R28c

Reinforced pair. As with many photographer cancels, they are precancels. Both stamps have full gum. Ex-Baryla.

 

Scott # R29c

R29c

Horizontal block of 6 plus a single R29c and a single R60c on a promissary note. Blocks of R29c are fairly scarce. This is the first I've seen on document.

 

Scott # R29c

R29c

Horizontal pair.

 

Scott # R30c

R30c

Tolman B-10.

 

Scott # R32a

R32a

Horizontal pair with indeterminate blue handstamp cancel.

 

Scott # R32a

R32a

Vertical pair.

 

Scott # R32b

R32b

Ship brokers. Vertical pair with great handstamp cancel. Unfortunately it's actually a pair of R32a that someone has added perfs to at left and right.

 

Scott # R32b

R32b

Faulty, but one of only two known multiples of R32b imperforate vertically. As a general rule, part perfs are normally found imperforate horizontally, and only some of them exist imperforate vertically, virtually all considerably more scarce as the latter. Ex-Curtis.

 

Scott # R34c

R34c

Horizontal pair with right stamp showing a double transfer at bottom. Not the 'Complete double transfer' listed in Scott.

 

Scott # R34ce

R34ce

Horizontal pair exhibiting a very vibrant shade of ultramarine.

Scott # R45a

R45a

Horizontal pair. Three cancels on this one... handstamped, punched, and manuscript.

 

Scott # R45d

R45d

Horizontal pair. Scott value is for two singles, since Scott does not list a pair value for this particular stamp, presumably due to scarcity (there is no listing in The Curtis Census for R45d). Two visible blue threads, one on the reverse of the left stamp and one on the obverse of the right stamp, both highlighted with yellow arrows. Right stamp also exhibits a faint doubling of the top frameline, however not as strong as the Scott-listed 'top frame line double'.

 

Scott # R46b

R46b

Horizontal pair on piece.

 

Scott # R47a

R47a

Gorgeous vertical pair with striking early-use cancel.

 

Scott # R48a

Scott # R50a

R50a

Horizontal pair.

 

Scott # R50b

R50b

Scott # R57c

Scott # R59a

R59a

Horizontal pair.

 

Scott # R59a

R59a

Horizontal pair.

 

Scott # R59c

R59c

This scratched plate crosses several stamps. Multiples containing more than one position of the scratch are quite scarce.

 

Scott # R59c

R59c

Vertical pair with diagonal plate scratch crossing both stamps. Not the major long plate scratch that Scott lists, but a second scratch at a different angle.

 

Scott # R62a

R62a

Scott # R69a

R85a

Vertical strip of 3.

 

Scott # R85c

R85c

Horizontal pair.

 

Scott # R87c

R87c

Horizontal pair on piece along with an R78c. It's too bad that this was cut down. R87c multiples are scarce and even more so on document.

 

Scott # R88c

R88c

Horizontal pair.

 

Scott # R89a

R89a

February 1863 conveyance (deed), Franklin County, Ind., in the amount $6,400, stamped with matching $5 Conveyance imperforate pair. On the reverse, a justice's jurat stamped with matching 10 Certificate, this a scarcer usage as this tax was rescinded March 3, 1863, nice 'double EMU.'

 

Scott # R89a

R89a

Horizontal strip of 3.

 

Scott # R90a

R94c

Horizontal strip of 3.

 

Scott # R98a

R98a

Horizontal pair.

 

Scott # R104

R104

Mint with full original gum. Full OG mint 1st-3rd issue revenues are quite scarce; the vast majority sold as 'mint' or 'unused' were actually used but uncancelled stamps that were sweated or soaked from documents. Scott does not price them mint, only used. The catalog value shown is for a used block of 4.

 

Scott # R107

R107

Margin imprint pair with partial plate number. Ex-Morrissey.

 

Scott # R109

R109

Block of 12 with roller/waffle cancel. Stamp at upper left is an unlisted double transfer (tops of numerals, INT.REV. at top).

R109

Block of 4 with the top left stamp containing a recently discovered double transfer at top. Ex-Morrissey.

R115

Horizontal strip of four, the stamp at far right having a double transfer at top.

 

Scott # R115

R115

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 # R139

R139

Horizontal pair.

 

Scott # R140

R140

Horizontal pair with freak perforations.

 

Scott # R140

R140

Horizontal strip of 5. I don't normally go after multiples or play the '11th largest known multiple' game, but I made an exception for this piece. Even though it is the 3rd largest reported multiple (there is one block of 6 and one strip of 6), the quality of the individual stamps in this strip is MUCH nicer than those other multiples, with each stamp having centering well clear of the perforations, but also there is a margin imprint capture at lower right. Ex-Morrissey.

 

Scott # R144

R144

Horizontal pair.

 

Scott # R144

R144

The triangular punch was part of the canceling device, as it is perfectly centered within the circular handstamp. Unusual to see them in multiples. Ex-Morrissey.

 

Scott # R147

R164p

 

Scott # R165p

R165p

Irregular block of 19 of the 3-cent battleship revenue stamp with hyphen-hole perforations on a 1901 promissory note. Per the Curtis Census, this is far and away the largest reported multiple of R165p, with the second largest multiple being a block of 6.

 

Scott # R165p

R165p

Block of 4.

 

Scott # R166

R166

Vertical pair with dramatic shift of the rouletting.

 

Scott # R168

R168

Pair of R168, along with a single R163, on document fragment. On the reverse is a single British 5-shilling Foreign Bill revenue stamp. Combination usages of U.S. and foreign revenues on the same document are fairly scarce.

R168a

 

Scott # R171

Vertical pair, along with a vertical pair of R164, along with a R168, R169, and R163.

 

Scott # R171p

R171p

Plate number strip of 4. Scott value above is as 4 singles. Durland lists a plate number strip of 3 at $350.

R172p

Meticulously written manuscript cancel on this moderately tough pair.

Scott # R177

R177

Nice 3-line handstamp cancel on a block of four.

 

Scott # R183

R183

Mint full gum block of four.

 

Scott # R184

R184

Lovely full-gum MNH block of 4. Very difficult to value, as (1) Scott only lists used blocks of 4, not mint, and (2) Scott does not give a price for never hinged. I have simply applied a MNH premium of 100% to the value for 4 singles.

 

Scott # R185

R185

Attractive block of 4 with handstamped and cut cancels.

 

Scott # R187

R187

Scott # R205

R205

Commission merchants. Block of four.

 

Scott # R207

Scott # R228
