    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Mojjax,
    As you may know, the value of that stamp is educational and historic; more than dollar value. You can find many offered here:
    https://www.mysticstamp.com/Listing/.../Narcotic-Tax/
    As the site says: "The tax covered opium, coca leaves and their derivatives, and ran from 1918 until 1971. The first RJA's are overprints on the documentary issues, and the later ones are generally long strip stamps designed to run over stoppers and caps of medicine bottles."
