Two 10-cent Inland Exchange part perforate revenue stamps on 1864 articles of agreement. This is a case where imperforate vertically pert perfs are MUCH more scarce than imperforate horizontally, and are not reflected in the catalog values. This is only the second bona fide example of R36b imperf vertically that I have seen in almost 20 years.
