The State Revenue Society advances the collection and study of revenue stamps of U.S. states.
Our State Revenue Catalog contains over 700 pages of listings, descriptions, and full-color illustrations. This second edition is the most comprehensive state revenue stamp catalog, whose quality is recognized by novice and seasoned collector alike.
We publish the State Revenue News quarterly to disseminate philatelic research articles and keep members abreast of the latest discoveries.
While complete updates are published in the State Revenue News, summaries, announcements, and website-related news are posted here.
