Springer never paid attention to the stubs, only to the different papers.

Don't have time to provide the scans now, but I suspect that the 1872 Brewer's Permits were printed in larger than sheets of 4, possibly 8. I have the plate 2 with stub that has the First Series. Will scan later.

There is also a plate three which I have used so no information about the stub.

Finally it should be noted that both the Springfield list and Springer listed this on green paper. I have a fairly late serial number 261989; There were only 277,600 delivered. My copy is on the violet paper. If there were any on green paper delivered, it would have had to be only a portion that were delivered during the last year. I think we can safely conclude that this stamp was never printed on the green paper.

Ron,

Eric has a top copy of plate 1 on his website with no plate number in the margin. So your point of sheets larger than 4 is valid.

A question for those of you who collect early cigars taxpaids (TC):

How do you store/display your cigar stamps (which, for the unitiated, are quite long!)? I've not any stock sheets that would accommodate them.

I use the SAFE Horizontal XL Album http://www.safepub.com/sections/sta...-extra-large
It holds MOST of the cigar stamps, but I have a few that are still too long for the pages (I store them diagonally in a single pocket sheet)

Although this is not a particularly large cigar stamp, I left it on the box to keep it in context.

I discovered a variety among a couple common taxpaids today. I have an uncut sheet of four of these Distillery Warehouse stamps and a couple singles, all remainders. These are all Series 1875, but one of them has a serial number with an engraved "Z" before the number. There are no other differences I could spot between them.

Anyone have more info about this? Could this indicate a rollover and restart of the numbers?

Greg,

Yes, there was a restart on the serial numbers. You will also find this same stamp with a Y in the serial panel, yet another restart of the serial numbers.

Thanks for the info! I wonder why they started with "Z" and worked backwards. You would think "A" would be the logical restart letter.

I haven't had access to a flatbed scanner in a while, but I did manage to scan in a few of my taxpaids this afternoon. The first set is my favorite series, the snuff stamps of 1872. The following are TE 34-38.

This next set consists of tobacco stamps that I collect sporadically. Most of my examples have been backed with all manner of paper. These are all from the 1868 issue, and they are TF 5, 7, 9, and 10.

And finally (for today) something a little different: a parchment cotton tag (Type I, #2) complete with its still sharp barb:

Lest anyone think DenimDan is kidding, that barb is still VERY sharp, even after 150 years.

DenimDan, Nice snuff tax paids. I am really wanting to find a cotton tag such as yours. Seems like the last one I saw at auction fetched a nice price. That is a great revenue item. Let the search begin.
Hope you got a tetanus booster as well, lol.
