This is one, used check dated 1878 from the First National Bank of Morristown New Jersey. It has an applied Revenue stamp that has NOT been canceled, as required by law. RARE. Interesting that these Revenue stamps and for that matter, the IRS, were started around the beginning of the Civil War. The United States was almost bankrupt and the north had no funds for the war. Almost everything had a revenue tax to pay for it. When the war ended, the tax kept on, as this check in 1878. The Revenue fees continued except about 5 years until they needed money for the Spanish American War of 1898. Then they started again. There are some punctures on the check from the manner the bank canceled the check. Shipping with USPS First Class , standard envelope. I will combine shipping with another purchase No tracking on this one. If you want tracking, contact me about pricing. US only. No international shipping, sorry.
