Hello rod222, a quick Google search returns a Virginia Law Register result. Va. Code of 1904 p.2198. Adhesive stamp for a tax of $1.00. I'm on a phone and can't read the full entry. Hope this helps!! Edward Hatcher Ould, the notary on the seal, died in 1919.
This stamp is listed in the SRS State Revenue Catalog as VA D2 with a CV of $100. The face value is $1 although it is not stated. There is a rouletted version listed as D1 and a $1 brown that is smaller as D3.
Goodness me, that was a huge surprise. I just paid $1.50 for two, if I recall. Just on a whim. Thank you very much Eric.
They may have been printed in small blocks, as each has a straight edge, and one has two, being a lower left corner.
New word for my Lexicon Quaere is legal Latin, literally meaning "inquire" or "query". In legal drafting it is usually used to indicate that the person expressing the view that precedes the phrase may not adhere to the hypothesis following it.
