Share your GB & Commonwealth REVENUE stamps here

Post by HalfpennyYellow »

.
I searched for quite a bit and while there are threads for revenue stamps of particular countries, there seems to be no thread dedicated to revenues of Great Britain and the Commonwealth. So if you have any, post them here. :)

Let me start with these. Here is a selection of three Maltese revenues:

1899 Queen Victoria 1s with local overprint Revenue (Barefoot 4)
1899 Queen Victoria 1s with London overprint REVENUE (Barefoot 13)
1908 Melita 2s6d with London overprint REVENUE (Barefoot 26)

Thanks for starting this thread, I've been meaning to post these and now a good home for them.

Grenada QV Revenues; I don't have a Barefoot so have no idea on cat numbers or indeed value.

The 2012 Barefoot has them at 75p for the 2d. rising to £5 for the 5/-.

W/marks are found inverted in 50% of them BTW so no premium for those.

This is a Cape of Good Hope £1 revenue which I sold recently on eBay. I think it is Barefoot 105. Unfortunately it had a thin.

The last one is perfed "7 + JUL 1900" with half of the last "0" missing off the stamp. The other 10/- at the top of this page is similarly perfed but with only "7 + JUL " showing

What about "JUDICIAL" ? Is that a revenue stamp? I have not seen that overprint before.

I know ... the stamp is worthless but I kept for the overprint

Not worthless at all :!:

My 2012 Barefoot values it at £10 (Bf14), (but missing perfs. would reduce that).

I presume it is a "revenue" stamp(?). Do you how it was used?

Also, What is the full name of the "Barefoot" ?

Yes it's a revenue. There are many types of fiscal / revenue stamps, for example:

Airport Tax
Consular
Court Fees
Excise
Passports
Revenue
Stamp Duty

and many many more.
Britcollector wrote:Also, What is the full name of the "Barefoot" ?
"Barefoot" refers to John Barefoot's catalogues United Kingdom Revenues and British Commonwealth Revenues. John Barefoot also publishes catalogues for revenues of several other countries.

http://www.jbarefoot.co.uk/

Note that there is a website, Revenue Reverend, which lists revenues of several Commonwealth and Middle Eastern countries.

Meanwhile, here is a specimen Jersey £500 revenue stamp, that was issued in 1981. The original stamp is catalogued at £100 in Barefoot, but the specimen is at £35. However it is overcatalogued since a single can be obtained for £2.75 on ebay:

Jersey is the only part of the United Kingdom which still uses revenue stamps.

Thought you might like this Hong Kong fiscal. Douglas Lapraik & Co.Formerly a Scottish watchmaker turned ship owner.

Apart from the company chop being pretty scarce, it is rare to find any attractive company security marks at all. If they were all of this calibre, I'm sure there'd be many more collectors in this field.

This picture shows some Fiji items. Some of them are regular postage and revenue issues and some have the bar and R overprint indicating valid for revenue usage only. One piece has mixed usage. Most of them seem to be cancelled quite neatly for revenues and the piece on the bottom row comprising KE7 6d and KG5 5s and pair of 1s does not have any cancel or pen/pencil mark at all.

I don't know if they are any good or not - you sometimes see these on ebay.

Actually there are MANY expensive revenues, especially the high values. Most Commonwealth revenues are not so common, and a good number are rare. There are many unrecorded stamps and possibly others which were printed, issued but no copies have survived. If the demand for revenues was as high as that for postage stamps, there would be MANY items costing £1,000,000s since there are many unique items.

The above scan is of the reverse of the Hong Kong 10c shown further up. The ink stamp on the back is "AGENCY".. but why it was stamped in mirror image I cannot figure out. It does not show through the front. Any ideas?

Possibly there was "... Agency" on the document, and when the stamp got soaked off, the wording still showed on the stamp. A similar example would be when you find "Affix stamp here" on the backs of postage stamps, which would be the mirror image to what is printed of the envelope.

In Barefoot, they are quite expensive. The best item is the KGV £1 which is catalogued at £50.
Just goes to show, I'd have thought one of the Edward VII pound stamps would have been the best, probably the one on the left of the pair shown below (shown in larger size than in the previous picture).

Image

I've also spotted a variety on another strip - a break in the bar on the middle stamp.

The KEVII £1 black and blue (I don't know if yours is faded or if it was the normal colour, the "black" shades on early Commonwealth stamps vary a lot from light brown to black) is catalogued at £50, the one on red paper at £35.

The £1 black and blue could be faded. It also shows signs of gum degradation which might have affected the colour too.

I found it listed here: http://www.ibredguy.co.uk/main.php?g2_itemId=73745 and the copy there is also brown. So even if it is faded, probably it's normal for that issue, i.e. the colour does not reduce the value. :)
