Lower Brule Indian Reservation

Migratory Waterfowl Stamps

The Lower Brule Reservation is located adjacent the Missouri River in central South Dakota, directly across from the Crow Creek Reservation. It is believed that stamps were first required to hunt waterfowl on the reservation starting in 1962. The same stamps were used for many subsequent years. Spaces were provided on the stamps to fill in the fee charged and the year issued. There were two fees: $2.50 for tribal members and $5.00 for non-Indians and non-members.

A later printing of the stamps resulted in "LOWER BRULE RESERVATION" being typeset on two lines. For at least two years, 1969 and 1970, both types of stamps were being used concurrently. Unused examples are known of the earlier type without the year and fee filled in. These are currently noted with a "—" in the unused column for the first listing. No unused examples of the Type II stamps have been recorded. No used examples of either type have been recorded with "$2.50" marked on them (for tribal members).

All stamps are believed to have been printed in booklet panes of five (1x5) with a tab at the top. The panes were perforated 11 3/4 between the stamps and between the stamps and the tab. Stamps from all years have dry gum. Values for unsigned stamps are for copies with the year and fee written in and without gum. For images of all stamps in this series see 1962 - 1972 Lower Brule Stamps.
