In what we all hope will be the first of many more to be posted on this website, here is an article by ATTS member Monte Dean, entitled “Just For Fun”. It originally appeared in ATTS Newsletter #138, back in 2007.
Monte makes numerous helpful suggestions for a situation that all collectors encounter: they think they’ve run out of things to collect. The horror! This enjoyable article show us all that we just might not be collecting outside of the box as well as we thought we were!
I thought I’d start the first post of the month off with a slight change of pace and post something different. Here is the very first newsletter that the American Tax Token Society ever released. The A.T.T.S. began in 1971 and this first newsletter quickly followed. Forty-two years later, the newsletter is still on schedule and going strong, with issue number #161 just having been released this Summer.
So, check out our humble beginnings and consider joining, if you aren’t already a member!
Another contribution from the personal collection of Lawrence, this time with examples of Ohio stamps attached to documents, showing tax being collected, in PDF form.

Here is a new contribution from Lawrence, showcasing a collection of Ohio stamps from his collection, in PDF form. The theme here is stamps and counterstamps.

Another submission from Lawrence, he sends a question to our resident Ohio scholar, along with more photos in the form of a PDF:
I recently acquired a Big Bear MPC with a black print color issued May 1935 with a serial # in the 25000 series.
Please recheck your Big Bear MPC print color listed in the guide because if it is in fact green that would mean 2 different print runs for the Big Bear MPC!!!!! I believe mine has a radically lower serial number than what is listed but I have misplaced my copy of the Ohio guide.
