1757 Nantucket County, Mass., Dowry Deed 1st Colonial Embossed Revenue Tax Stamp For Sale

1757 Nantucket County, Mass., Dowry Deed 1st Colonial Embossed Revenue Tax Stamp

1757 NANTUCKET COUNTY, MASS., DOWRY DEED 1st COLONIAL EMBOSSED REVENUE TAX STAMP. First Colonial embossed tax stamp issue on a 1757 manuscript document, U.S. Revenue RM-2, two pence, “Codfish” type. The document represents a “dowry deed,” Nantucket County, Massachusetts. The tax stamp appears at the upper left and is boldly embossed, crisp, and mostly clear. A choice example of one of the earliest tax stamps used in America. Tax stamps were required on many Colonial documents and were one of the bases for the revolt that followed the hated Stamp Act. Signatures: Benjamin Barney, John Gardner, Samuel Starbuck, Nathan Coffin.

The document measures 12-1/2” X 7-1/2”. Condition: written in dark brown ink, easily read. Some minor paper losses, folds, toning; overall good.

I will be listing a collection of 18th- and 19th-century documents and letters, most of which pertain to the Revolutionary War, Civil War, and American whaling industry. The transcriptions are my best interpretation of the penmanship. You should review the photos I have posted in each listing and decide for yourself.
