Documentary stamps show that appropriate revenue taxes have been paid. A $500 tax in 1871 was equal to nearly $53,000 today so fraudulent cleaning and re-use became tempting. To foil such attempts, the Second Issue Documentary Revenue stamps featured exquisite designs and bold shades of red, orange and black known to collectors as Persian Rugs. Only 210 high-value stamps were sold and just 76 survive today.
