Description
Lincoln RelatedRemarkable Set of Eight Tobacco Tinfoil Revenue Stamps

1879 to 1883. Collection of Eight Different Manufactured Tobacco "Tinfoil" Revenue Stamps. With large Abraham Lincoln vignette Portraits, average Very Fine.
This is a remarkable collection, each pair of items carefully placed on four 11" x 17" white card display presentation sheets, with informative annotated descriptions. All are original "Western Steam Tobacco Works, Milwaukee, Wis." blue printed labels, with United States Tobacco Revenue Stamps imprinted upon the left side panel, "OLD ABE" and the Lincoln vignette at center, with "Leidersdorf & Mendel - Milwaukee, Wis." below. Some are used, others carefully laid down on card for preservation and display purposes. Collection sold "as is" as a set, and are of far above average quality for these very scarce and unusual U.S. Reveue stamps. Some show round date stamps, including "1883". Of special interest to Numismatists, is the use of the classic Miss Liberty and Liberty Cap on pole central vignette design used for the Revenue Stamps, as seen on the famous Libertas Americana Medal and early American copper Half and Large Cents. This cataloger had to decide which section of the auction in which to place this fabulous, unique set, which has elements of interest to Coin, Currency, Stamp and Abraham Lincoln collectors alike. We hope that you will all find this wonderful rarity.
