Public Auction: The Fleishman Family Collection -
June 30, 2015
We are pleased to present to you the Fleischmann Family Collection of
United States Revenue Issues, Private Die Proprietaries and Telegraph
Stamps, formed over three generations by one of Cincinnati's most prominent
families. The collection is replete and includes many of the scarce to rare
items that most-often escape even the advanced collector. Focused upon
rarity and quality, some of the nicest examples available today are being
offered within. These historically important stamps were issued when the
United States had no Federal Income Tax and the extraordinary demands of
the Civil War upon the Federal Treasury resulted in Congress devising and
passing the Revenue Act of 1862.
