Hi, I came across these two items in a mixture and the denominations of shillings caught my eye as worth further study.

Both appear to be related to estate planning from the text on the reverse sides. Anyone know what catalog numbers they are and the values?

Hi Crouse27,

The first stamp is an adhesive general duty stamp from a set issued around 1904.

This is #210 in the Barefoot catalogue, priced at 1.00 in my very old 1989 edition.

The stamp has a die ID "I" at the right.

The embossed Sheffield cancellation shows the date of 23 January 1907.

The second stamp is a general duty stamp which was embossed directly on to the document at the stamp office, dated 22 January 1907.

I don't have a catalogue for this one but you could look for The Impressed Duty Stamps of Great Britain by Frank, Schonfeld & Barker.
