Stock transfer stamps are revenue (tax) stamps that were used on receipts to show that the state and federal tax had been paid on a stock trade.
There are some pictures of stock transfer stamps in this thread.

I really like the revenues for some reason. If they weren't so expensive (relatively) I might consider them for my new collection.

This is a Massachusetts stock transfer stamp. I have a set of six denominations from 2c to $2.
All the designs are similiar and incorporate the Great Seal of Massachusetts.



The Latin inscription on the Great Seal is "Ense petit placidam sub libertate quietem,"
meaning "By the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty".

I also like revenues. I have some from bank shares that were sold for a local bank when it opened in the 50's. It had since merged with another bank about 20 years ago in the mid 80's. The shares are now obsolete and the banks purchase receipts books had the appropiate tax revenue stamp on it.
