    I am exausted trying to find out about this. I have looked up the company, ebay, stamps, revenue stamps, John Quincy Adams stamps and even eamiled people on ebay whom responded in terribly rude manners. I am only asking for information as to age and why out of the hundreds that I have found none have these stamps on the bottom or the amount of paper straps left on the side. Why doesn't this one have a "strike pattern" on the bottom. I would also like to know how old it is. Why is the inside of the top blue when the ones I've found are gold and the bottom of mine is silver and the others are gold.

      Too bad the tax stamp is incomplete. If you had more of the tax stamp and could see what series it was it would help. A Series 100 would be year 1930, 101 would be 1931 and so on till Series 125 would be year 1955. Prior to 1930 they would have an actual date stamp on the tax stamp itself. I have some stamped 1910, 1916 and others.
