The stamps were used to show that the duty levied by the government on the use of a cheque had been paid - they didn't go into the postbox.


Oh this is new for me.
Thanks Geoff.

You can also find them as cross-country usages. Documents with revenue stamps from multiple countries affixed, depending on the countries and period in question, can be VERY scarce and quite expensive, easily into the many hundreds of dollars.

These are all very nice! I especially like the embossed imprints. Fyi, there is sub-forum devoted to checks, stocks, and bonds - you might try posting some of these over there. http://goscf.com/f/18

I have a small box of these in bundles of 100 (around 100 bundles mostly 2c but several 3c) --- some cancelled in a variety of ways and others uncancelled. Unfortunately these squares had been clipped from the cheques before I came into their possession.
