    Hi PdotK:

    Interesting item. Is it a maxim card with a 3 pounds stamp affixed or is a postal card with the stamp printed on it?

    Tinfoil was used in the 19th century for tax-paid chewing tobacco revenues. Sometimes the tinfoil was coated with lead...

    Of course, there is a book on them! :) United States Internal Revenue Tax-Paid Stamps Printed on Tin-Foil and Paper Tobacco Wrappers by John Alan Hicks.

    The below stamps are part of 10 stamps issued by USPS under Bioluminescent Life. Though these stamps do not glow in the dark, they are highly reflective under white light and imparts a sense of movement and light because of rainbow holographic material.

    On 20th June 2018, USPS has issued 10 scratch and sniff stamps under "Frozen Treats".
