#M11620 – Florida Citrus Tax Stamps, Used, Set of 5

Short-Lived Citrus Tax Created Neat Stamps

During the Great Depression, Florida established an inspection program to control conditions under which oranges, tangerines, and grapefruit were brought to market.  The taxes went into a special fund used to advertise the fruit.  Because these Revenue stamps were affixed directly to boxes, baskets and cartons, few survived, especially in used condition.  Interesting and seldom-seen – send for yours today!
