Stamps (Philately)/Documentary U.S. Internal Revenue Series 1947


I have some 1 cent and 10 cent documentary Internal Revenue stamps with a picture of Alex Hamilton.
Just wondering their value.
Thank you

Hello Rich,

Thanks for your question.

Revenue stamps were used as a form of receipt to show payment for goods received or services rendered.  The 1c stamp you have there is Scott #R461.  It has a list value of 55c each.  The 10c stamp is Scott #R467 and it has a list value of 30c each.

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.

I have been involved in philately for most of my 56 years. I specialize in United States Issues and Postmarks. I have numerous reference sources to research if I do not know the answer. I am organized and promise swift courteous answers. I am a member of the American Philatelic Society. I also have my own philatelic mail order business.


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.
