FINE APPEARANCE, THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED EXAMPLE OF THE 1917 EIGHTH-BARREL WITH TYPE B SURCHARGE. ONE OF THE GREAT RARITIES OF BEER STAMP COLLECTING.
This stamp is not listed in the Priester census. Ex "Scarsdale". With 2012 P.F. certificate
VERY FINE. THIS IS ONE OF VERY FEW RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THE 1933 ONE-HOGSHEAD IN BLACK WITH BUREAU SURCHARGE, SCOTT REA168. ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL REVENUE STAMPS.
The Priester census records only one example, which is likely the one offered in our 2006 Tolman sale. The example offered in our "Scarsdale" sale was likely unknown to the authors. Eric Jackson is aware of two additional copies, so four or five are known in total.
VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 1933 SECOND ISSUE ONE-HOGSHEAD BLACK, OF WHICH ONLY FIVE ARE KNOWN.
It is believed that there are two additional copies outside of the Priester census, for a total of five known examples of this rarity.
