2206   Image1914, (75c) Surcharge on 50c Brown on Pale Green, -1/2bbl., No. REA79b, Beer (REA100Ab; Priester 105A). Large margins to in including part of adjoining stamp at left, bright colors and clear overprint, large "FINK B Co., 3:18:15" perforated cancel (Fink Brewing Co. of Harrisburg Pa.), small faults

FINE. PERHAPS TWO EXAMPLES OF THE HALF-BARREL 1914 ISSUE ON PALE GREEN PAPER ARE KNOWN. ONE OF THE GREAT RARITIES OF BEER STAMP COLLECTING.

During World War I, a surcharge of $1.50 per barrel was added to reflect the new tax rate. For a half-barrel stamp, such as the one offered here, the surcharge would have been 75c. The underlying stamp used for most of the 75c surcharges was the 1909-11 Issue (REA86). A small number of the 1902 Issue (REA79) on Light Blue and Pale Green paper (REA79b) was also surcharged. Perhaps two are known.

Ex "Scarsdale". With 2004 P.F. certificate as the old Scott REA100b. Scott Catalogue was changed to more correctly reflect the underlying stamp and this is now Scott REA100Ab, which is reflected in the 2012 P.F. certificate which also accompanies (Image)
