Tax Paids were among the large stock of Revenue stamps locked away for decades in the vaults of the Smithsonian National Postal Museum. The stamps were auctioned off in 2006, and we jumped at the chance to purchase these unusual treasures for you. Most collectors didn’t know the stamps existed. (They aren’t even listed in the Scott Specialized Catalogue.) The late Sherwood Springer, a Revenue stamp expert, classified them in his catalogs.
Tax Paid Revenue stamps have a history that goes back to the Civil War. They were affixed to containers of tobacco products and were divided into classes based on the tobacco’s quality. Each class was taxed according to weight (for tobacco and snuff) or quantity (for cigars and cigarettes). Tax Paid stamps were issued for most of the next century.
Here’s your chance to be a part of that history with the collections offered here. Each includes mint Cigar, Cigarette and Tobacco Tax Paid stamps issued from 1953 to 1955. The two larger collections also have Snuff stamps like the one pictured on the left. No matter which you choose, you’ll get a great value and own something not found in most collections. (A fun new area of collecting for you to explore!) For your convenience, interest-free time payments are available!
