Not a bad haul for what is considered a "local club show." It didn't break the bank either. Probably the best items are the plate variety cherrypicks and the block of 4.

A couple of mint full gum 1st and 2nd Issue revenues, which are moderately scarce.






A nice Samuel Hart & Co. printed playing card co. cancel.




2-line handstamp cancel.




Unusual handstamp cancel with curved "ERIE" city name in center.




A couple early pre-revenue-era railroad stock certificates.






A number of attractive documents from The Anglo-South American Bank Limited, including two multi-country taxations.


















A draft on the Bank of London and South America completely wallpapered with 1-Peso revenues.




An Alabama usage.




If I need to order any revenue stamps, well at least I now have the order form.




A document with both U.S. and Canadian revenue stamps affixed.




Third issue 30c with large margins.




Absolutely ginormous R1a.




A nice petroleum company stock certificate with an absolutely hammered embossed seal.






Two $1 Inland Exchange, one silk paper, both exhibiting more dramatic variants of the double transfer in DOLLAR at the bottom.






R13c margin imprint capture also showing small plate scratch at lower left.




R55c with a double transfer I've not seen before, with doubling in top letters, bottom letters, and down the left side.




And the items I found that I was happiest to pick up:


Document with both a very interesting "DISCOUNT TELLER" handstamp with the document showcasing a huge format perfin cancel.




R183 horizontal pair with bright original color. 1. These are rarely found in multiples. 2. The lake color was a fugitive ink which runs when immersed in water. So any examples in very pale color have been soaked. Don't do that.




This is the first tissue stereoview I have seen from during the 2-year taxation period. Tissue stereoviews were hand tinted, with deliberate pinholes at places in the image where the light should shine through.




Surprisingly, this is the first Arkansas document in my entire 1st issue collection. Apparently they are more scarce than one would think. Presumably the "Subpoena in Changery" (it is definitely the letter "G") is a misspelling of Chancery? I can find no reference to the former anywhere.




And the 2 big ones IMO:

A used block of 4 of R259, the perf 10. It is listed but unvalued as a block of 4 both mint and used. Catalog value is $300 as 4 singles.




An R13c with all-over double transfer. Very scarce! This one is different from the other examples I have found, but there is doubling all over the place. I wish the cancel actually wasn't there, as it obscures some of the doubled elements. The image below is 3200 dpi, so if you click on the image you can see it at high resolution.

Nice show success.

"CHANGERY" is correct.

Unusual, but does note a change as this example from a chancery court, " Original bill in Changery The clerk of St Louis Circuit will pleaseIssue a subpoena G A Bird Solicitor forcomplts Filed 12th March 1831 Archibald Gamble Clerk Copy of B "

From:http://digital.wustl.edu/stlcourtre...735.019.html

THE CHANGE? One man named Gilbert, a negro man, is being changed from the status of slave to that of a free man by his owner, Jonathan, a free black man. Seems a real and good change in my mind. Oh, not that Jonathan needs any help to understand his intentions, he had only that day acquired the possession of Gilbert via lawful bill of sale.

There is a different order form, a USPOD form, for ordering documentary stamps by postal clerks for use on parcel post matter in the USA 11/1917-12/1921. It is a special section on a standard stamped paper order form. I will post one eventually. Must dig out and photograph.

EDIT TO RESPOND TO revenuecollector's POST BELOW:

One needed to know "changery" was a good law-related word, then Google ignoring any changes to chancery until you find something good. There are modern hits but a contemporary usage to your item was preferred. It does help that one of my prior hobbies was reading old unabridged dictionaries 1920 or earlier.

Interesting. If you do a Google search for the term "subpoena in changery" (in quotes) it literally returns zero results. It only offers results for "subpoena in chancery".

Would they have been using a form revised in 1898 for the 1917-1921 stamps? The proprietary stamp face values do not go high enough on this form; One would think that they would have revised it for the later time period.

I see a bunch of amazing things there. The subpoena, that is truly an amazing piece of history on many levels.

Very good haul.

It does say chancery on the back side. And also handwritten as chanchery.
