Sight draft with both U.S. and Canadian revenue stamps

Sight draft with both U.S. and Canadian revenue stamps

Just another piece of evidence to refute the claims that you can’t find anything good on eBay.

This is an 1872 sight draft from Hamilton, Ontario to Boston, Mass., with a pair of Canada #FB51 and 2 singles of FB46 (Van Dam numbers) along with a single U.S. #R135.

Documents with both U.S. and non-U.S. revenue stamps affixed are quite scarce, especially from the 1st-3rd issue era. Examples from the Spanish-American War era (1898-1901) are a bit more findable, but still very uncommon.

Even with the condition of the document itself being a bit frayed around the edges, this is easily a $150-250 item at retail.
