Mr. Leon,

I found the attached $50 revenue stamps that appear not to be cancelled.  They were on the back of some stock certificates for our ranch.  They don't appear very old, and are in good condition.

I was wondering if they would have any value?  I appreciate your time.

Thanks,
Amy

Answer
Amy,

Your revenue stamps are from 1954 and are designated Scott number R680.  Fault-free, eye-appealing examples in unused condition are valued at $55 each.
