Just got this email this morning. There's not much time before the sale, but I'm excited to see what's going under the gavel.

Overall condition is always a concern for this type of "old time" collection, but there is a lot of catalog on that front cover.

I'll bet a quarter that those Items aren't in the auction.

What is the stamp in the lower right corner that says "silver tax"?

You would lose that bet, guaranteed they would not show them if they did not have them for the sale. There was a 50% tax on profits from the purchase of silver bullion from 1934 to 1963. This particular stamp is one with the "series 1940" handstamp, a very scarce stamp.

Ah I didn't know such a thing existed. I'll be doing some more research into this now that you've provided the initial info.

A very expensive area of revenues to collect seriously. :-(

Illustrative, maybe? Since there is no cat. #'s associated with the pictures. Many places use Illustrative pics. Usually the same ones, though.
Another reason I said a quarter.

Serious revenue collectors don't need cat numbers for these stamps, they are easily found in the catalog. And given the value of these stamps, only serious collectors would likely to be be bidding. Plus this auction house doesn't use "illustrative pictures" for their catalogs. They always use items actually in the sale.

I'm pretty sure the major auction houses (and I think Kelleher is in that category) never use illustrative pictures on the covers of their auction catalogs. Stamps shown on the cover will be in the auction and are probably some of the auction highlights.

And that's why I "never" wager more than a quarter.
Story is, I was with a friend once at a slot machine cuz he said it was fun. I put in a quarter, puled the lever, and nothing. It was very disappointing.
Been in a casino, never been to las vegas. Been close, but I cant stand sitting around gambling. Just not my deal.
As you have seen, by my loss of the proverbial quarter here, its better this way. LOL

Well you got something for your quarter here - a little addition to the sum of personal knowledge. Is revcollector's bit-quarter now in transit?

Well, No one took me up on the bet. I was simply informed I would lose.
To my knowledge, no one actually looked to see if the Illustrations were Items for sale.
I don't doubt his knowledge in the matter, however, a bet requires 2 parties to be contractual.
So, in light of my recent education in auctions houses so kindly provided by Revcollector, I retract my bet, but am grateful for the addition to the sum of my personal knowledge. :)

The sale has not been posted online yet, so no one can actually prove it yet. Having seen dozens of catalogs from this company I know they will be there however.

There are at least 11 RG55 known. I maintain a list of the control numbers of genuine series 1940 handstamps for the different categories for which they are applicable (about 16 different stamps). There are specific groups of numbers for each variety that all genuine handstamps must fall into. That's one of the factors in determining whether a handstamp is genuine or not. I currently have 11 numbers listed for this stamp.
I have personally examined about 5 or 6 of the Macklin Match stamp, always a fun stamp to see.
