RVT1, RVT2 Trailer Permit Revenue Stamps on Licenses, 1939
Very few matched Trailer Permit revenue stamps on license exist. This particular pair were issued in late 1939 for entrance to Petrified Forest National Monument and Grand Canyon National Park. The NAVAHOPI handstanp indicates travel across native american land. An amazing pair of very difficult to find items. Will not separate.
The two Trailer Permit stamps (#RVT1-2) were issued by the Department of the Interior National Park Service on July 1, 1939. The common design shows a large automobile pulling a house trailer. Required to be affixed to “License to Operate Motor Vehicle” when a house trailer was attached to a motor vehicle entering a national park of national monument. Issued to rangers in booklets of 50 (five 2×5 panes), the use of these US revenue stamps was discontinued in 1952.
