There are 7 stamps here that I set aside because I like how different they are from the other US stamps that I have.

Starting from the top left, reading from left to right:
  • 5 cent Inter. Revenue, Series of 1880 Documentary stamp. (I like the matching 1880 cancellation from New York)
  • 3 cent Century of Progress stamp of the Federal Building.
  • 10 cent State of New York Stack Transfer Tax stamp.
  • 1 cent Inter. Revenue, Series of 1880.
  • 1/8 cent Inter. Revenue, Series of 1880 Proprietary stamp.
  • $50 Internal Revenue Documentary.
  • 1 cent Columbus in Sight of Land. (Lightly canceled)


I don't know much about them other than the obvious(not including the Columbus and Century of Progress), what about y'all?

Revenue stamps in the Scott catalog also known as "back of the book" section paying various taxes. Three federal "battleship" tax stamps. One federal future delivery tax stamp on certificates of stock. One State of New York tax stamp found in the State Revenue catalog.

The battleship stamps are from 1898, not 1880.

5 Documentary is Scott # R167
1 Documentary is Scott # R163

1/8 Proprietary is Scott # RB20

The Future Delivery stamp is from 1918-1934, Scott # RC17, and is damaged.
