Interesting strip of 9 with dates 2, 3, 4, 5 Oct 1899, without any other company ID.

The top stamp cannot read date.

Each date in order there are two each.

The one cent value is mostly found on Bills of Lading usually Steamers or Railroads.

Has any member have factual background information how this strip would have been used, also any other orientations?

I think they were used wherever there was space for them. Often down the margin.

I think what he wants to know is why there are several dates on the same strip. The only thing I can think of is that every time the document is looked at a different date is stamped - makes sense to me but there's no way to know for sure. Great looking item!!

@Smauggie

Thank you for your reply to my posting, I would have never thought of that "I think they were used wherever there was space for them."

Your example for the stock cert. for the Enterpise Telephone Company, is this an actual example?

Again thank you for your response.

re: Strip of 9

I bought some Canadian stamps from a friend here on SOR. Along with the stamps, he sent a cancelled check from the 1940’s with a George VI 3 or 4 cent stamp affixed and cancelled. At that time, check transactions were taxed. The banks were issued cancellation hammers, the stamp would be affixed and cancelled before sending back to you. Of course, your account would be debited for the stamps used each month. An interesting use for postage stamps!

re: Strip of 9

I have several cancelled checks but with Canada War Tax stamps from the teens on them, not revenue stamps. I also have a couple US checks with revenue stamps attached - sorry I can't do scans! One of the Canadian checks is from a very small town in the West, (a Thrashing Company in Broderick, Saskatchewan) for $1732, a huge amount of money in 1916, the equivalent of about $50 000 today. I guess it was common practice to tax bank stuff with stamps at that time!

Well, it is not as if stock certificates, like the one pictured above were printed with a special place to put the revenue stamp. The same goes for receipts, bills of lading, etc.

As to your question regarding whether my stock certificate is an actual example, I really do not know what you mean. I would think it's actuality rather speaks for itself. I did not draw it in MS paint.
