Stamp paper Madhya Bharat, Cochin
« on: December 19, 2012, 03:06:15 PM »
I don't think this belongs in Banknotes - please move to appropriate location.
I found these at a recent coin show - does anyone collect stamp paper?

Well, I do have a small collection of Gwalior Princely state Stamp Papers. After Independence, Gwalior became a part of Madhya Bharat, and as such, the stamp paper of Madhya Bharat also forms a part of Gwalior Stamp Paper.

Thanks Abhay...another question...is that the whole stamp paper? It's about 3 X 6 inches, pardon my ignorance but I've seen stamp paper that is a full size sheet where the contract or legalese is written out. I was wondering whether the bottom of this sheet was cut off. Or do they make them in different sizes?

The ones that are shown above are just the upper part of the paper. Most of the Stamp Papers are almost A4 size sheet.

That's what I thought, I guess they cut it to make it fit in a banknote holder. Once again thanks!

We don't have a true place holder for stamp papers ...
There are quite a few who collect stamp papers ... various themes ... quite a few are cheap but preserving the paper is a pain ...

Yes Sir, not seriously but whenever i manage to get at reasonable price, I pick the same.

The best thing was when i picked Stamp paper of Victoria, after High resolution scanning i was astonished to see the stamp of my hometown Ghazipur. :)

As far as i know (little bit) there are 2 types,
1- Like ordinary Non judicial full page Stamp paper.
2- Like a big stamp which were used to pay court fees and generally pasted upon.

Attaching few I have related to second category.

If you are saying A4 then I think you may store & file these stamp sheets in A4 transparent sheets.

Warm Regards,

They are a little longer than A4, so I have put them in FS or Legal Size transparent sheets.
