2210   Image1917, (75c) Ty. A Surcharge on (37-1/2c) Ty. A Surcharge, 25c Green on Blue, -1/4bbl., No. REA93, Beer (REA120B; Unlisted in Priester). Priester Type 70 and Type 105 surcharges, the latter with full "ACT OF OCT. 3, 1917" (the only surcharge type containing month and day), large margins all around, "M B Co. +5:25:18" perforated cancel, light creases not mentioned on accompanying certificate

VERY FINE. THIS IS THE ONLY REPORTED EXAMPLE OF THE 1910 25-CENT QUARTER BARREL WITH BOTH 1914 AND 1917 PROVISIONAL SURCHARGES. ONE OF THE GREATEST BEER STAMP RARITIES AND ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE INMAN BEER STAMP COLLECTION.

The existence of this stamp with both 1914 and 1917 surcharges is very unusual. By the time the 1917 surcharge was used, the 1914 unsurcharged issue (Scott REA108) had been in use for almost three years. The stamp offered here reflects the rate change from $1.00 per barrel when the underlying stamp (REA93) was issued, to $1.50 per barrel in 1914, when the first surcharge was applied (REA98). The rate was again changed to $3.00 per barrel on October 4, 1917, when the 1917 provisional surcharge was used. This remarkable item must have been found in early 1918 and placed into use with the second surcharge applied, so as not to waste a perfectly good stamp.

With copy of 2015 P.F. certificate as REA98 var. This has since rightfully been given its own Scott listing as REA120B. (Image)

ONE OF THREE REPORTED EXAMPLES OF THE TYPE B 1917 PROVISIONAL SURCHARGE ON THE HALF-BARREL 1916 ISSUE. A WONDERFUL BEER STAMP RARITY.

The three REA124b stamps reported in the Priester census have different types of surcharges (Types 140, 144 and 145). Ex Tolman and "Scarsdale". With 2006 P.F. certificate. (Image)

FINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS ONE OF ONLY TWO RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THE TYPE A SURCHARGE. IT IS ALSO THE EARLIEST REPORTED USE OF ANY STAMP FROM THE 1933 SURCHARGE SERIES WITH THE TYPE A SURCHARGE. A GREAT RARITY.

The other recorded example was offered in our 2006 Tolman sale, but it has a different type of surcharge which is unlisted in Priester.

EXTREMELY FINE. THIS IS ONE OF VERY FEW RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THE 1933 ONE-HOGSHEAD IN BLACK WITH BUREAU SURCHARGE, SCOTT REA168. ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL REVENUE STAMPS.

The Priester census records only one example, which is likely the one offered in our 2006 Tolman sale. The example offered in our "Scarsdale" sale was likely unknown to the authors. Eric Jackson is aware of two additional copies, for a total of four known.

2218   Image1933, Ty. B Surcharge on 5bbl. Black on Blue, Beer (REA169; Priester 197c). Priester Type 220 surcharge, large margins, center cut out, "IND BR'S Inc., 1.17.36" perforated cancel, "Stamp No. 1" at right, light horizontal crease at bottom

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE AND DESIRABLE EXAMPLE OF THE 5-BARREL BLACK 1933 ISSUE WITH THE TYPE B SURCHARGE.

The Priester (and therefore Scott) listing for this issue can be a little confusing. Priester lists the 5bbl. and 25bbl. three ways, with and without the Type 220 surcharge: 1) with cut-out center, no Priester number, no price and no census listing, 2) Uncut, Priester No. 197ca, no price and no census listing, and 3) Center cut-out only, Priester No. 197cb, one recorded. The last listing suggests it would just be the center cutout with a part of the surcharge, which is how the 25bbl. is known (see Siegel Sale 1067, lot 666), and one in such a state does indeed exist. The stamp offered here, with cut-out center, would appear to be the first listing and therefore unknown to Priester. However, it is not unique, as a few others have reached the market over the past decade or so. (Image)
