All,

Among my many collections, I have a revenue calendar collection from roughly 1862 - 1902.

I am primarily searching for 6 specific dates for the Battleships:

1898: 24 November
1899: 4 July
1900: 22 Feb, 30 May, and 29 Nov

My dupes are organized by month and year - if you need specific dates, let me know and I can look to see if I have anything for you.

The following are the specific months I am trying to finish up. Sundays are nice, but I don't sweat those yet.

Yes - I have been working on this since 1996![/font=Arial][/font=Arial]

Fun things to do with cheap stamps!

I was frustrated with my inability to add to my state revenue collection (I collect all 50 states and DC) and saw a calendar collection of some British Empire stamp. Looked easy enough and so I decided to give it a try.

21 years later I may be deciding it wasn't such an easy idea after all!

While the first 3 years of Battleships are very strong, the other years are not so much. Here is an example of the earlier civil war issues:

If you want a challenge, try completing October 1862. Might take a while...

The earliest stamps were the 3 cent and 4 cent proprietaries on Oct 4. Good luck with finding any. Or with knowing whether or not they might have been backdated for any date that month. No other stamp was used for more than 2 weeks, and I doubt very many of those are around either. Even with all the stamps you have, do you even have half a dozen October 62 cancels?

I see the Bank Check was issued Sept 29, but even there October dates will be all but impossible.
