Hi All,

Anyone have any idea of what this is? It says Florida, so could be some sort of state revenue, but I found in a mix of non-US.

Thanks,
Josh

re: Florida Stamp?

don't think it's US; the "cts" is typically Spanish-language for centavos. it's certainly not USPOD or USPS postage

Uruguay C8, August 24, 1925 Mint $30, Used $14
Florida in this case is a town in Uruguay 60 miles north of Montevideo. This stamp used only on August 25, 1925, the centenary of the Assembly of Florida, on a special flight from Montevideo to Florida.

re: Florida Stamp?

Great covers, Roy! Some specialists believed the stamps in question were actually registration stamps used only to pay the registration fees for the mailings. Your covers would seem to bear this out!

Thank you very much!
