Would some one help me with these 4 Excise stamps. What are the catalog numbers for all these? What catalog has these numbers?
Thanks for any help. They are not in the Scott catalogs.



Thanks to all who have replied. I now have numbers for these items and a source of further research. I love Stamporama!

The stamps are listed in Barefoot and Hall - "British Commonwealth Revenues". I have an older catalogue - 1990 edition, but the three Excise stamps are numbers
2c - 36, fraction - 53, and 3c - 64. I did not see the Cigar stamp listed. They are valued at about 10 to 20 cents.

Alternatively, the E.S.J. Van Dam catalogue of Canadian revenue stamps uses a different numbering system:
2 cent Excise stamp is FX36
3/20 cent Excise stamp is FX52
3 cent Excise stamp is FX64
Cigar stamps are not listed by Van Dam; there is a catalogue for tobacco stamps, which I do not collect, which if memory serves correctly is by Brandon.

Value is minimal for the 2 cent and 3 cent stamps (they are among the most common), and the 3/20 cent lists for 65 cents.

There is a 'Catalogue of the Federal Tobacco Stamps of Canada' by Christopher Ryan. It is accessible through the Van Dam website. In this catalog, I believe your cigar stamp is RG653 - 1938 'C' series.
