Revenue or Fiscal Stamps are now regarded as of philatelic interest. Like postage stamps they are used for the collection of fees or taxes, or other non-postal services.

Telegraph stamps are used to record payment for a message, usually its length. They often resemble postage stamps but have more limited use.
