I haven't looked at the stat counter on my website for "State of New York Stock Transfer Tax Stamps" in quite a while - and so when I did, I was really surprised by how much it's gone up over the last few years.
It's surpassed Twenty Thousand
hits! This really came as a surprise to me. The reason I started the page years ago was to provide some info on these common revenue stamps and then it grew into a bigger project more and more as the years went by. I still have several more ideas that I've been meaning to add to the site - simply short on time to get them done.
Anyway, I was just excited that it's helped out so many collectors. It started as a little "blurb" of a page that I though a few dozen people might like to see. Boy, has that changed!
If anyone wants to peek, you'll find it here. (And for anyone who thinks I may just be drumming up business, or hits, or clicks, or whatever - NOPE, not a single penny is generated from hits to this website. It's all just information provided to collectors - totally free and totally "Ad Free" as well. So I don't make a thin dime no matter how many people look at it.)http://myplace.frontier.com/~ktk.la...TransferTax/
