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.

Some of just a few of the highlights contained within this collection include:

  • First Issue Imperforates: 3c Playing Cards (#R17a); $1.30 & $1.90 Foreign Exchange (#R77a & R80a); $2.50 & $3.50 Inland Exchange (#R84a & R87a); $10 & $20 Probate of Will (#92a & R99a); $15 & $25 Mortgage (#R97a & R100a) and others.
  • The Second Issue contains one of the finest examples of the $200 (#R132) of which Kingsley reported 19 sound without cut cancels, and also one of the finest of the 76 reported $500 Persian Rug (#R133). Three rare examples of the I.R. Provisional Issues 8c, 10c & 15c (#R156, R157 & R158) are included.
  • The Documentaries of 1940 include $500 (#R285a), an uncommonly well centered and never hinged example of the $20 (#R305A) and a $50 (#R306A) as well as two examples of the $500 (#R309). The 1953 $2,500, $5,000 & $10,000 (#R651, R652 & R653) are also present as well as many other desirable items.
