U.S. 1st Issue Revenue Stamps


(Last updated on December 27, 2016)

The table below lists all the major varieties for the first issue of U.S. Revenues. If I own a particular variety, you will see a thumbnail link to a full-size image of the stamp(s); an entry without a thumbnail means I still need the stamp. Feel free to contact me if you wish to sell/trade me a revenue I need (I'm always looking to trade worldwide classics for U.S. revenues. A gray table cell indicates that this particular variety does not exist for that denomination/type.

Clicking on an image thumbnail will pop up a window with the full-size image and other information about the stamp.

(These aren't necessarily the nicest examples of each type and denomination in my collection;
the emphasis is on handstamped and preprinted cancels. See my cancellation galleries for other examples.)
