Brunei $5 and $25 Stamps Revenue 1910

Continuing on my blogs about the Brunei $5 and $25 stamps which I have in my collection. The Brunei $5 and $25 stamps were also used for fiscal purposes such as paying stamp duty and so on. Hence the words Postage & Revenue which are on the stamps. Revenue means stamp duties or any other payment which are required. These two stamps which I owned originally came from a document hence the word PAID stamped across the two stamps rendering these stamps 'used' and not mint. According to the same catalog produced by Steven Tan, these used stamps should be worth M$4,000 and M$1,100 respectively.
