  1. Revenue collectors, that is.

    While this isn't the earliest known revenue specialist dealer, I thought it was a neat item.

    Nice looking cover. I was trying to figure out the cancellation on the stamps, looks more like a smudge than anything else.

    Maybe it's coal? LOL (sorry if not funny) :p

    Great and worth keeping cover.

  5. I don't know that they're necessarily anything other than obliteration marks, similar to sharpie/marker cancels we see today.

    Like these, are they worth keeping or are they worthless and ready for the trash?

  7. The modern ones I'd throw into kiloware or a packet mixture. The cover I posted, on the other hand, is still interesting due to the sender. The actual cancels and stamps are of nominal interest.

    Yes I do agree the cover over rides the canc. mark. But as stamps alone go they lose a lot with the marker I would guess.

    You are correct Tom, I hate to receive stamps that are pen/marker cancelled. It takes so much away from the beauty of the stamps.
