Here's what appears to be a pretty blatant attempt to re-use a revenue stamp.

It looks like the date was changed from 1/27/71 to 4/27/72.

Probably not too surprising, since $25 at the time was worth about $550 today, according to this website:

It's also possible that the document had a second transaction at a later date, so someone changed the cancel. Without the document we can never be sure exactly what occurred.
