One possibility is that it originated in a local district collector's office because of the unavailability of the required future delivery stamps. Robert Cunliffe, the renowned revenue specialist, conjectured that this was the result of tax on a futures contract for silver, with the tax on silver being 50% of the profit on the transaction. This same handstamp is also known on some of the small denomination documentary stamps. First reported in Sloane's Column of February 3, 1945 (copy of article accompanies), this is the only recorded example of this rarity, which easily qualifies as one of the most important Silver Tax and Future Delivery revenue items in existence; ex-Cunliffe.
