When this lot came up at Kelleher, I decided to bid on it. I already have several examples of the 2-cent Transmississippi (#286) used improperly as revenues on documents, but zero examples of the 1-cent (#285).
This lot of 4 documents had not 1 but 2 examples of the 1-cent. The first is a horizontal pair on a July 16, 1898 check from Detroit Michigan, and the other is two singles on December 26, 1898 check from Sidney, New York, the latter document having been caught, and then an R155 affixed to properly pay the tax.
Quite pleased with these additions.
