Well, I apologize that I can't answer your question but rather noticed a name on that first document that I have never heard used as a person's name. Norway? or is it just Norman?

By the way those are beautiful documents! I just love the red ones!

Usually there is not a large premium for stamps on document unless the document itself os valuable. Having said that, it is less common to find higher catalog value stamps on documents, since many were soaked off for collections, so the top two are certainly less common.
FYI-the bottom document is one of those "inland exchange" rates that was asked about yesterday. Five cents per hundred dollars or fraction.

It also depends if you're talking average ( eBay) retail or Eric/Richard retail. For the former, I would think that the first 2 documents are worth $100-200 each. Eric & Richard would likely price them somewhere north of full Scott.

I thought the dollar amount on the bottom document was unique, $666.66. I was assuming they were the "Covers" of the revenue world ?

Couple of others.

If my id is correct an R84 and 2 R91's





This one is a 10 page document with 11" X 17" folded papers with a R145, R148, and R120











I'm really impressed with this one just based on how they initialed the tiny stamp

Assuming that these are of minimal value ? best to list them separately ? I have 4 or 5 of them, or list them as a group with a .99 start and hope for the best ?

These early 20th century documents are very common, the real problem is there is no way to tell which watermark they are without removing the stamps. The usual assumption is that they are the cheaper ones, which is almost always accurate. Especially with a sizable company in a major city. They normally retail in the $1-$2 range.
