1867 Washington 2 Cent Revenue Stamp

1867 Washington 2 Cent Revenue Stamp


This is a two cent revenue stamp on an sales receipt from the Chelmsford Foundry Company of North Chelmsford, MA. This is NOT a postage stamp but a revenue stamp that was used as proof of tax paid on various items to help the federal government pay for the Civil War that ended in 1865. This revenue stamp was proof that a tax was paid on the bank check that paid for the items from the Chelmsford Foundry Company. It was 'cancelled', with the date of cancellation added in ink, as proof that the tax was paid. These revenue stamps, in this condition, are rare and very collectible.

Make sure to click on each picture to see the entire picture and its description! Finally! I have gotten a chance to take some pics of my home. Most of these pictures are of my living room that is set up as a lawyer's office from the early 1800s. (Yes! I am crazy!) This first pic is what you see when you walk into my living room and look to the right.
