Snuff Tax Revenue Stamps- Missing From Many Collections!
Also known as smokeless tobacco, snuff is a powdered tobacco product that is either sniffed into the nose (snuffed) or applied to the gums. Snuff was taxed at a rate based on weight. The first separate Revenue stamps for the product were issued in 1870, and a large number of different shapes were produced to accommodate different package shapes. Beginning in 1932, annual series were introduced.
