re: Are these collectible

I'm not sure about US, but I pick up the odd Canadian one if they have an interesting revenue stamp or war tax stamp or if they happen to be from a local community. My guess is there are probably collectors out there for them, but not at a huge price. Just my humble opinion ...!

re: Are these collectible

Disclaimer: This isn't my collecting area, and I don't even collect US Revenue issues.

You must admit that these are rather mundane transactions: an insurance claim payment, and some paychecks.

If I were into this area, I'd be skimming off the payers or payees of some historical note. Of course, that's contextual: different strokes for different folks.

In my collecting areas, I'm always on the lookout for notable people, either senders or addressees. There are autograph collectors out there too! Wikipedia to the rescue!

Couple of examples of recent items I chose to collect:
- A usage of an 19th century local stamp on a lady's cover sent from an old DPO to the sister-in-law of a very famous local Quaker entity: Thomas Scattergood (Scattergood institutes are still in operation today). Sent from a Quaker school that had many Scattergoods among its leadership.

- A cover bearing an old DPO postmark sent to a local community leader in the 1870s and 1880s - John B. Bachman.

I'm always looking for an interesting historical connection in the pieces I collect.

-Paul

re: Are these collectible

Many people collect these in relation to their revenue collections.

They can be of interest in many different ways;

--names of famous people
--well-known places
--by collectors' state or town
--an interest in the date
--an interest in the image - if it has one
--rarity of the bank drawn on
--and of course, the stamp and/or its usage


I have quite a few of these types....I very much enjoy them!

Happy

re: Are these collectible

I would think that the document with attached revenue would be part of a larger exhibit etc. Its always nice to see a stamp "in action".
