Time for a new SCF donation giveaway, one keeping with what I collect and post about: U.S. revenue stamps.

These packets contain approximately 50 or so U.S. revenues from both the 1800s and 1900s. Unlike my airmail packets, these packets will each be slightly different, although there will be a fair amount of overlap, especially in the 20th century material.

It will all be common material, so don't expect anything of major value... although it's always possible I might have let something slip through.

In the interest of full disclosure: there WILL be duplication, faulty stamps, perfin, cut, and punch cancels.

One of the actual packets is pictured below. I don't know which envelope it is in, so I don't know who will receive it.

The rules:

1. These packets are available to anyone who donates $10 or more to SCF.

2. One packet per person, available until the packets I made run out.

3. When you make your donation through the PayPal button at left, PLEASE make sure to add a note to the payment that provides your board username AND that it's for the "revenue packet giveaway". I can't stress this enough. It's the only way to verify your donation.
The powers that be will forward me confirmation of the donation received and I will contact you through the board for your address.

4. I will cover the postage, both domestic and international.


It's for a good cause, so step up!

Just so there's no confusion, the minimum donation for my airmail giveaway was $5, whereas the minimum donation for this one is $10.

Packets for Mike33 and fredcdobbs are in the mail.

Great idea! I do not know if I can participate in a "Give Away" yet or not. But when I can, I have a lot of foreign stamps to give away. I will even take care of the postage. I do not know the values and don't much worry about that and don't want to take the time in an area I am no longer collecting. Some of them were accumulated in the early 1960's. Some look Old.

You all please advise me when I can start posting them and how to go about it. My idea was "First come first serve", but now I see the "Hat" and need your consensuses as how to run it.

Thanks, Mud

revenuecollector, I bought a beautiful pair of imperf revenuestamps from you on eBay. I use the same user name on eBay as here. You can send that eBay item with the 3 packets of "Donation Giveaways.
