    Hit one of the local Antique Malls and came across this stock transfer certificate for the National Tea Company. It is either an R218, an R241 or an R258 2$ Internal Revenue Stamp. The R218 color is listed as "Carmine" and was printed from 1914-1915, the R241 color is listed as "Rose" and was printed in 1917 from what I can tell, and the R258 color is listed as "Rose" and was printed from 1928-1929. Considering the date of the document, this is looking like the R258.

    That was a good find. :)
    I do not own a classic documentary stamp and this one makes me want to have some. :D

    Great find Gunny! I love revenue stamps on original documents. I got a few of those myself.

    I've encountered revenue stamps before. I have seen a few of the 1898 battleships, and at one time found an old bank check franked with a Scott R155 in a banknote lot.

    Here's another one that I picked up at an antique mall. It's on a check dated 1898. I do like the color.

    I like those battleship revenues, especially on document. That's a great acquisition!

    Here's a land transfer document from 1916 that has a 50C Documentary Revenue stamp affixed.
