First Federal Issue: Virginia
 
Virginia First Federal Issue revenues are common.  Virginia is the second most common state of origin for these revenues.  However, the number of documents recorded from Virginia is distorted by the large numbers of 4¢ and 10¢ revenues.  In fact, there are six states with fewer documents recorded of all values combined, than the number of recorded copies of the 4¢ Virginia embossed revenue.  The remaining Virginia denominations are of average scarcity.  All denominations are recorded to the $1 value.
