Sale Number 1149, Lot Number 201, 1898 Spanish-American War Provisional Surcharges8c Violet Brown, "I.R." Overprint (R156), 8c Violet Brown, "I.R." Overprint (R156)8c Violet Brown, "I.R." Overprint (R156). Choice centering with wide and balanced margins, deep rich color, neat M.M. L.I.C. 7/12/98" manuscript cancellation (Michigan Mutual Life Insurance Co.)

VERY FINE AND CHOICE EXAMPLE OF THE 8-CENT "I.R." EMERGENCY PROVISIONAL OVERPRINT. THIS IS ONE OF THE FINEST WE HAVE ENCOUNTERED.

To meet the increased demands for revenue during the Spanish-American War, on June 13, 1898 Congress approved the War Revenue Law of 1898. The law was to become effective on July 1, 1898, leaving only seventeen days before the new stamps were needed. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing had already started work on the dies, rolls and plates in anticipation of its passage, but they were still unable to issue stamps when the law went into effect.

A large quantity of 1c and 2c stamps were printed with an "I.R." overprint (Scott R153, R154, R155 and R155A). Additionally, a handstamped overprint was applied to small quantities of 8c, 10c and 15c denominations. These issues mark the first time that the United States had to resort to surcharging. According to Sloane's Column (Jul. 31, 1948), the Michigan Mutual Life Insurance Co. handstamped copies of the 8c, 10c and 15c regular issues over a period of five days in July 1898. Sloane states these provisional revenues were brought to the philatelic market by J. E. Scott, a collector and employee of the company. J. E. Scott reported that the company used 41 copies of the 8c, 66 of the 10c and 28 of the 15c. The Scott Retail values support this relative mix of supply.
