This single stamp is my whole collection of beer revenue stamps.
Beer stamps are usually found in poor condition and can be expensive when
they are offered in good condition, often at multiples of catalog value.







This 1871 Scott REA21 16-2/3c vermillion, white silk paper, Abraham Lincoln, paid the tax on 1/6 barrel of beer.

That revenue is awesome! I have a few revenues and really like the engraving and detail on most of them. Of course I like yours because it has Honest Abe on it. I have a topical collection for Abe.
