Robert A. Siegel Auction Galleries, Inc. Sale: 1209

United States
Revenues: Wines and Playing Cards

Sale No: 1209
Lot No: 1630
Cat No: RE107E

image $50.00 Yellow Green, Wine, Perf 12-1/2 at Left (RE107E). Serial no. 19568, flawless centering with wide margins, light "Geffen Ind./Dec. 31, 1941" two-line handstamp, a few expertly filled-in staple holes, faint internal paper bend


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 just recognized as separate listings in the 2017 Scott U.S. Specialized (RE107E and RE107F). (Image)
