July 14, 1898: Mekeels Advert for Battleships

Advert for M.C. Berlepsch for newly issued battleship revenue stamps
in the July 14, 1898 edition of Mekeel's

Two weeks after the war taxes came into effect, and stamp dealers were busy selling battleship revenue stamps.  Note that a plate strip of 10 of the 4 cent proprietary was for sale for a $1.40 from Mr. Berlepsch.
