State Revenue stamps - Stock Transfer

The principal U.S. stock exchanges are located in New York City, but other cities such as Chicago and Philadelphia also host stock, commodity and mercantile exchanges. Individual states such as Massachusetts, Pennsyvlania, Texas and Missouri have also issued stock transfer stamps, as it is an easy source of revenue. While counting numbers, imprints and other marginal markings have been reported, no plate number examples of state stock transfer stamps are known. This is an area for further study.
