jayvin,

The Penn State reds are SRS (State Revenue Society) catalog numbers RE3 (Issued 1950) with a catalog value of $2.50 each. The "Pint Bev. Tax" (color described as bistre) is from 1934 as catalog number B8 with a catalog value of $0.50.

I'm in love with that first blue one with the cherub/fairy/pixie on it! What is the number on that or is it that #RT4? Lovely!

According to revstampman it is the RT4.

It is only about as big around as a sharpy marker.

Do you want a bigger scan?
