Yes, I think I can be of assistance once I stop laughing and My sides stop hurting!
They are called "Tobacco Strips". They fall under the heading of "Tax Paids" which Scott does not list. Unlike most conventional Revenue Stamps they list the value by the number of Ounces or Pounds (the weight kind for you Brit's.Sorry I couldn't help myself). They are listed in the Springer Series of Catalogs. If they are all similar to the one pictured they range from around 25cents to a few $. If you make a list of Series #, Ounces and Imperf or rouletted I will look them up for you. I have several 100's of these. I posted some pic's of some of the other types in this thread.
i will have to make a a detailed list of these stamps. like I said I really had not looked at them so such a long time. i want you all to know that I do appreciate all of your help. i will make a list and send it to you rev man.
again a million thanks for all and any of your help i do wish I was rich so I could just purchase some stamps lots and see what I can find
i do admit yesterday the first post did make me hungry for some chocolate
