Wine Stamps (RE)
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
2097   Image$50.00 Yellow Green, Wine, Perf 12-1/2 at Left (RE107E). Serial no. 19550, precise centering with wide margins, light 1941 handstamp of the Quality Fruit Wine Corp. of Brooklyn, N.Y., a few tiny staple holes in the right portion that are practically invisible (the other three we have offered had staple holes repaired or filled in)

EXTREMELY FINE. A SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THE VERY RARE 1934 $50.00 WINE STAMP.

The definitive article on these issues was written by Ron Lesher and published in the August 1983 American Philatelist. The high-denomination wine stamps came into use when the law was changed in 1916. The change stipulated that taxes would be collected when the wine left the customs house, winery or other bonded storage facility, rather than at the point of retail sale. This allowed revenue stamps to be affixed to the case, cask or even railroad car rather than each individual bottle. They were issued in booklet form, perforated only at left, in booklets of $400.00 (twenty $20.00 stamps, ten $40.00 stamps, etc.). The first series (Scott RE56-RE59) was used prior to Prohibition and on religious and medicinal wine during Prohibition. They were reprinted starting in 1933 after Prohibition (Scott RE107A-RE107D). The $20.00 and $40.00 were only reprinted in 1933 and have the same perf gauge as the earlier pre-prohibition issue. The $50.00 and $100.00 were reprinted in 1933 and also in later years, in two different perf gauges. These were recognized as separate listings in the 2017 Scott U.S. Specialized (RE107E and RE107F).
