These are 4 "tax paid" stamps for beer and liquor. The Orange one is for 1/2 barrel fermented malt liquor, and it is punched "A B Inc 12 20 33", the 2 State of Illinois stamps are both for three gallons of beer - one is punched "M.B. Co. 9 9 36" and the other is punched "M.B. Co. 8 31 36". The one with the 12 in the center is a Tax Paid stamp for Uncolored Oleomargarine. It states that the tax is one-fourth cent per pound - and it is dated 1931.

    I guess its more appropriate to say that this is 3 tax stamps for beer and/or liquor, and 1 for oleo. Apologies for the confusion :)
