Album pages for playing cards, fermented fruit juice stamps

Earlier today, I uploaded Special 2021 supplement #2 for The Philosateleian U.S. Stamp Album. It includes spaces for two categories of revenue stamps: playing cards and fermented fruit juice. This is part of my ongoing effort to expand The Philosateleian to accommodate many of the fiscal issues of the United States.

In preparing the pages for playing card stamps, I decided to omit spaces for the various surcharges used only by specific manufacturers in the late 1910s and early 1920s. By no means am I saying that those stamps are not collectible, or that I’ll never consider creating pages for them, but they were simply out of scope for this initial effort.

I’m now moving on to pages for silver tax stamps and hope to have those prepared soon.
