Subject: Duty stamp

Duty stamp

From: Jevon Thistlewood <jevonthistlewood>

I am currently treating a painting (dated 1809) that has duty stamp
on the back. The stamp is a series of boxed numbers enclosed in a
long rectangle and reads 538|879|172|7. So far I have found one
reference to duty stamps in an article from The Connoisseur of 1932.
Does anyone know of any more recent information or research
regarding duty stamps?
