3-cent Washington used improperly as a revenue stamp on an 1866 marriage certificate from Sycamore, IL. Doubly illegal, as the tax was also underpaid by 2 cents, as the rate was 5 cents. There is an attached statement from the bride's parents granting permission for the marriage.

If you have any information or comments about this cancel or stamp, please email me.
