Ecuadorian Revenue stamp for Tabacco Manufacturers with Postal Overprin

Post by 22028 »

Here a strange Colombian Revenue stamp for Tabacco Manufacturers with an overprint “Postal Adicional Cinco Centavos”.
Never seen this stamp, is it listed in any catalogue?

It’s an obligatory tax stamp from Ecuador. Issued in 1939, SG 623, very cheap catalogue value.

SG doesn’t illustrate the basic tobacco tax stamp, maybe Michel does?

I just remembered this stamp from sorting out Ecuador a few weeks ago.

Quite an ugly stamp, with “Ecuador” hiding under the postmark :D

They illustrate the basic stamp in type 115 with an earlier overprint for SG 407 from 1924.

I hadn't noticed the steam locomotive before. :)
