I have a few of these from the 20's and 30's.
Do collectors pay attention to them..??

Absolutely. The collecting endeavor is called Scripophily and belongs to the numismatics family.

The engravings on some of these stock/bond certificates are fantastic!

There are fiscal history collectors who love to analyze the tax rates for new issues of stock or the tax rates for transfer of ownership of stock. on transfers there are sometimes three sets of tax stamps: federal, state of residence, and state where the transfer is taking place. I am not aware that the scripophilists care much about the stamps. They potentially interfere with the beauty of the artwork of the certificates. The tax rates on bonds may at times differ from that on stocks.

According to Erling van Dam himself, Stock Transfer stamps on documents are not in high demand. This is with a focus on the stamps themselves and their catalogue value. Not to be confused with Scripophily as mentioned above. I have a fair number of full documents packed with a wide variety of Ontario Stock Transfer Tax Stamps (OST) and Excise Tax (FX). His little website, canadarevenuestamps.com offers many of these stamps, but none on documents. He has a few I don't have and I have some he doesn't have. I think these are very cool on full documents and they have an interesting story behind their use. I hope to see a time when the demand comes around because I would like to sell one day. A lot of mine have a staple right through them, so I'm trying to fend off rust the whole time I have them stashed away. I have put up some of these pictures before. These are also interesting because they have the names of real people on them. That could lead to an interesting research project on it's own. I also have a group of about 300 of these without stamps starting right from number B0001.

You may also want to check the signatures. Many were signed by the original owners of the companies: JD Rockefeller, Henry Ford, etc. so you may have some valuable autographs as well.

Robert,

I got a chuckle out of the title of this post. The answer had to be someone collects these. I am glad several others gave you some ideas on why one might collect them. You should look at some of Revenuecollector's posts with his finds of revenue stamps on documents. He looks at the documents, as well as, the stamps cancels, double transfers, usage, etc. Definitely similar to postal history in regard to signatures and dates.

And he is far from alone in such endeavors.

Wert, there is actually a sub-forum on SCF devoted to this kind of material: http://goscf.com/f/18
Affixed revenues are less collected than stocks/bonds with revenue stamped paper.

There is also a similar forum on the Coin Community Family that focuses on the stocks and bonds themselves, apart from the revenues.
https://www.coincommunity.com/forum...FORUM_ID=165

You'll find me lurking about on both.

It would be hard to find anything that someone, somewhere, didn't collect. The trick is finding the right people who are interested.
