It's not a bad start. You may have been able to obtain a similar collection cheaper, but I don't know that it's material. You have the basic material and a few that start to climb the ladder (the $5 charter party catalogs about $10), plus a few handstamp cancels (generally premium items) and even an actual imperf.

There's no substitute for having the actual material on hand to work with. You can learn what centering you like, what condition you like, what sorts of cancels you like, and so on.

Welcome to the world of revenue stamps - terrific lifelong collecting area if you want it to be.

The black area fill I did. It cuts down on the image size by 60%+. It was their image, not my scan. It is a habit that I have gotten into dealing with the 2400 dpi Franklin images. You would really be surprised at the image size saved. I have seen an image go from 70mb to 17mb with just area fill background.
The first two pages were a separate auction. I got those for $37 and the last 3 pages was $68. I saw a lot more better material in the larger stamps. All in all, I do not think I did too badly. There is some duplication, but not a lot. It looks like most of the basic stamps are there with a few better values. I went through the first page and cataloged it.




I am curious about the color variations. For instance the first two stamps, one is blue and an ultra is listed. I am not sure which is the blue and which is the ultra. Neither looks "blue". And the R3c below it and diagonally from that one. One looks org/red and other brn/red? Oxidation maybe? No color variation listed for that one.

There was a deliberate attempt and changing the shades over time to prevent cleaning and reuse. The light stamps got darker and the dark stamps got lighter over time. If you are going to get into revenues in any kind of even semi serious way, this book is invaluable for the 19th century material.

I went back and "fixed" the image and refilled the background.
I just did not pay close attention with my area fill.

Here is the second page that I cataloged.
The 4th stamp in the 5th row (R1c) looks to be unused.
Are all the values listed for used stamps?

I trust you enjoyed your Revenues.
They do look very attractive on an Album page.

My free gift lot of 30 from Revenue Collector, ably assisted with my free Scott specialised from member Kirk.

The Scott U.S. Specialized does not list any of the manufactured tobacco tax paid stamps (i.e., there is no monetary designation, only the size of package as in your ounce tobacco stamp).

The State Revenue Society published The State Revenue Catalog in 2013, available from Eric Jackson.

the Springer cats. will show meany of the non-denominated taxpaid revs.the prices are long out of date though. stampsmarter.com may also be useful. looking at any good revenue dealers listings of taxpaid items will also be of value.
