Ron,

Just to inform those who may not know, the Deats and Sterling remainders are the ones with the pie shaped cutouts so often seen.

I was just reading an old article from an 1891 American Philatelist by E.B. Sterling describing how he and Deats obtained and cataloged eight boxcar loads of revenue material from the U.S. Treasury. Fascinating story!

Deats and Sterling sold off the remainders to collectors and some eventually went to pulp paper mills. Here's an example of a giveaway item they created as a promotion at the 1891 Great Interstate Fair in New Jersey. They printed 50,000 of these, which may give you some idea how much material they had on hand.

They saved a lot more then the punched remainders, such as the complete Butler & Carpenter archives (all the first-third issue, proprietary, and m&m proofs and essays plus all the paperwork). Officials on cover and many other important items as well. Revenue and BOB collectors should bow at the very mention of their names.

The government retrieved a fair amount when it was discovered that there were many current tax paid stamps.
