The American Revenue Association
The American Revenue Association (ARA) is a non-profit corporation serving the needs and interests of all collectors of revenues, tax stamps, stamped paper, telegraph and railroad stamps, and general non-postal Back-of-the-Book material — U. S. and foreign, federal, state, provincial, local, municipal and private.
Whether you are a new or seasoned collector, the ARA has much to offer:
- The American Revenuer, our award-winning magazine
- Discounts on ARA publications
- Periodic auctions
- Sales circuits
- Annual meetings in conjunction with national stamp shows
Revenues are endlessly fascinating. Most are quite affordable. Yet some are as rare as an inverted Jenny, but cost much less. Many are still waiting to be discovered and recorded.
