Deed Stamps from 1863
These are the stamps off the original 1853 deed that we're using as part of issue 6 of Casefile Clues. I think the writing on the stamps is the initials of the man who sold the property, but it is hard to read on the scan. I have the original deed and think that a color photograph might have been better.
