MISCELLANEOUS NON-POSTAGE STAMPS

Listed by Year Issued.

1940 US INTERNAL REVENUE 1 PACK PLAYING CARDS STAMP with U.S. P.C. Co. OVERPRINT: Scott #RF29, Rotary Press Coil Stamp that was in use from 1940 to 1965, stamp is still on the sealed pack of playing cards, cards are sealed with the old style wax paper wrapper, an approximately one half inch tear is on the pack edge. Card back design is a green and white house with a brown flower overlay made by the United States Playing Card Company in Cincinnati, Ohio. A reliable way to date decks made by the USPCC is the dating code printed on the ace of spades at the time it was manufactured. Since this pack is still sealed, it's not possible to do that. It is believed that this pack comes from the 1950s, but that is simply a best guess based on the other items it was found with. Nice item for either a stamp or vintage playing card collector. See pack  $25

1954 UNITED STATES SAVINGS STAMP SHEET: Scott #S1, Sheet of 100 Red “Minuteman” Savings stamps, issued in 1954.

The United States Savings stamps program was created in 1954 to encourage savings and thrift among American schoolchildren. Stamps were issued in denominations of 10˘, 25˘, 50˘, $1, and $5. The “Minuteman” Savings stamps were accompanied by albums and other materials that appealed to the spirit of patriotism. U.S. Savings stamps were purchased by school administrators at local post offices and resold to students. An album containing $18.70 in Savings stamps could be exchanged for a $25 U.S. Savings Bond. See sheet  $69

1962 UNITED STATES SAVINGS STAMP OFFICIAL ALBUM: SBD-551-62 Rev., VG condition, has one Scott #S1 stamp inside, Minuteman on the cover, slogans such as "Save For College With Savings Bonds" and "Grow With America With U.S. Savings Bonds" are contained on the internal pages, the album contains space for $18.70 in Savings stamps that could be exchanged for a $25 U.S. Savings Bond.
