I'm not an organised collector of revenues but I go with the philosophy that if it's a stamp and from a country I collect then keep it, so I do have a few. I have a couple of the Law stamps from Canada and agree they're pretty but there are some others out there that can also lay claim to that.

Here are a few interesting ones from Victoria

While I've got the latest Barefoot catalogue the quality of most of the stamps isn't all that flash and I am working on a couple of other projects dealing with pre-decimal Australia. There's every chance I'll add more images to this thread in time to come.

Cheers

Some nice items there Stephan!

Meanwhile, here's a recent acquisition from Malta. The unappropriated 3d stamp from the 1926* issue is common enough, but it's the first time I've seen a fiscally used gutter pair of any Malta revenue. Unfortunately it's got a crease, but it's still a nice and unusual item.
Image
*The first printing of the stamps was sent to Malta in August 1925, and Barefoot states that these stamps were issued in that year. According to an old study paper by the Malta Study Circle the date of issue was 1 April 1926. Does anyone have any copies of this issue dated between August 1925 and March 1926?

I know people don't like things being soaked off fragments, but I might have to with these as they are getting toned... although actually it does look worse in the scans.


These Queensland strips of 10 were in a recent lot I bought

To revive this thread, here is a small selection of Kenya Judicial revenues which are a recent acquisition in my collection:
Image
The date of issue is not known, but these stamps are recorded used between 1928 and 1930. There are actually two types of the overprint, and the stamps shown above are mixed (1s, 3s, 4s and 5s from the first type, and the 2s, 10s and £1 from the second type). These were among the first Kenya stamps to be issued - predating Kenyan postage stamps by decades.

Some nice items eBay :)

I particularly like the Penang impressed duty stamps. I believe these were used both as directly impressed stamps on documents as well as cancellations on adhesive stamps - yours seem to be direct impressions. I'm not aware of the exact circumstances of this use, ie. the when/why/where they were used alone or as cancellations.

There were similar imprints for Malacca and Singapore, and I believe Singapore continued to use them until fairly recently.

Yes you are right. I had this following portrait in mind, where she is facing left. I'm not sure if it's the same portrait maker just reversed or what?
