Tobacco Revenues. Mostly unused collection of 81 large-format long strip Tobacco revenues mounted on high-quality album pages with Brandom catalogue numbers, which are now obsolete and have been replaced by an updated (but unpriced) catalogue by C.D. Ryan. Includes numbered singles and 'proof' examples without a control number. Consists of 10 examples of revenues inscribed 'Leaf Only' (Brandom #P101/P133, Ryan RP79/RP137), 16 marked 'Twist Only' (Brandom #P210/P229, Ryan RT1/RT135), 22 from the 1880-1885 'Tobacco' series in black (Brandom #P313/P350, Ryan #RP21/RP257) and 20 more from the same series in red (Brandom #P358/P382, Ryan #RP155/RP221). Finishing off this lot is a stockpage of 13 later tobacco strips, Brandom #P500/P950a (Ryan #RP717/RP1843). This is a collecting area growing in popularity and in the past similar lots have well exceeded our expectations! Estimate
