    Dealer in Leaf Tobacco Special Tax Stamps
    According to the Act of June 6, 1872, the Dealer in Leaf Tobacco "shall sell only to other dealers who have paid a special tax as such and to manufacturers of tobacco, snuff, or cigars, and such persons who are known to be purchasers of leaf tobacco for export." These had the same vignette as the Dealer in Manufactured Tobacco stamps did. Years and number of stamps are: 1874 (without the red date overprint) (14); 1874 (with the red date overprint); 1875 (14) plus one partial book of 8 full stamps and one stub; 1876 (6); 1878 (8) full stamps bound in a partial book; 1880; 1882 (25) plus one stub with 10 coupons; 1883 (6) plus one partial bound book with 6 full stamps, both cover and ledger; and 1884 (13). These items are not graded and there will be no returns on this lot for any reason. (Total: 99 items)
