Hello Steven,

Thanks for your question.

Revenue stamps were used as a form of receipt for goods received or services rendered.  The stamp you are asking about is Scott #R221 and it was issued in 1914.  The current list value of this stamp in used condition is $6.50.

Thanks again for your question and let me know if I can be of any more help.

P.S.  Please remember to rate my reply to your inquiry.  Appreciate it.

As I mentioned, I have been collecting philatelic items for most of my 56 years. I have several albums of United States issues (most of them are pages I designed myself) and I also have numerous albums of postmarks sorted and researchhed by state.
