REVENUE STAMP SCOTT R75C - $1 POWER OF ATTORNEY .........I went to a yard sale and found them in a stack of old deeds from 1862 I think they used them to fund the war.
Kinda neat, I've never seen one and I collected stamps 30 years ago.

I'm a specialist in Civil War era revenue stamps (see the link in my sig for my revenue reference website). If any of the deeds have stamps affixed, whatever you do, leave them intact. DO NOT soak or cut the stamps from the documents.
If any of the 1862-dated documents have stamps affixed, I am potentially interested.

They are still on the deeds send me a pm I have no use for them and would rather someone who's interested in them have them.
