Imprinted revenues that appear on railroad certificates

Thanks to help from revenue specialist Eric Jackson, I have dramatically improved my guide to Imprinted Revenue stamps you are likely to find on railroad stocks and bonds and related financial documents.

New date format

I have finished changing the appearance of dates in certificate listings. Henceforth, the portions of dates within parentheses will indicate dates that are handwritten or typewritten. The portions of dates outside of parentheses will indicate printed portions of dates.
For instance "188(6)-188(9)" means a certificate is known to have been issued from 1886 to 1889. The printed portion of the date is "188-".

New share value format

I have changed the format for the denominations of all certificates that refer to shares. For example, stock certificates, temporary stock certificates, stock transfers, and so forth, now look like this:

odd is now shown as odd sh
<100 is now shown as <100>
100 is now shown as 100 sh
