Antique 1883 United States Internal Revenue Retail Liquor Dealer Tax Stamp, Cairo, Illinois..

Here's a nice original antique Retail liquor Whiskey dealer $25.00 per year business tax stamp. This was to be displayed in his / her establishment, "If not, severe penalties were imposed for neglect or refusal to place this and keep it conspicuously shown".
The Civil War, Victorian era tax stamp is printed on a sort of a light gray or green colored paper, and measures 14 1/4" x 6 3/4", and all of the 12 months of Coupon tax stamps are there, plus the stub. This was unused and has been punched (9 punch holes) to show it has been voided..This has the tax collector stamped & written name of C. W. Pavey on license & stub...It's in great shape for its' age, just wear & tear on stub edge, nip on top right corner, and some fading & discoloration on edges as you can see in pics...

Take notice of the vignette at the top. It shows Mercury with a moonshine whiskey still, keg barrels, basket, and medicine staff, logo, etc....Really nice engraved historical document for that bar, office, etc... When held up to the light you can see the USIR watermark in the paper..(pics # 4)..

This will make a nice addition to your Office, Speakeasy, Americana collection, Pharmacy, bootleg, Home Bar, Whiskey, Liquor Store, Distillery, etc..etc...... Also a great gift to a bartender, LCB, Revenue Tax stamp collection, etc....... Check out our Prohibition Whiskey Prescriptions up for sale also...
