I happened to be in Indianapolis yesterday on other business, so while there I dropped by Denny's house for a visit. I brought him some bulk revenue documents for his Pick-N-Pay (tm) box and had a chance to browse through some new things... even though I just saw him 2 weeks ago at the MSDA show.

Not anything majorly scarce or earth shattering, but some interesting aesthetic pieces, some outside of the revenue-stamp sphere.

An interesting little 20th century railroad freight ticket, taxed with a 1-cent documentary.




A full-page receipt format; non-typical. Most receipts were 1/4 to 1/2 sheet.




A somewhat mangled check with an R15c showing a minor double transfer at bottom.








Cool RN-G1 from the "Seal Rock Tobacco Co." in San Francisco.




A couple of non-revenue checks with allegorical figure vignettes.






And lastly a stock certificate that while not revenue-related, was just too cool to not pick up, both for the imagery and the company name: a 1900 certificate for 2000 shares in the Electro Pneumatic Transit Company. Given the date, I'm not sure why there was no revenue stamp affixed.

They might have been affixed to an accompanying document which was originally attached.

The freight receipt is probably the least common item; how many collectors would have bothered saving one.
