Wanted cigarette/alcohol excise stamps - can SMOKERS help?

Post by HalfpennyYellow »

Many countries issue excise revenue stamps (some may call them 'labels' or 'seals'), usually in the form of banderoles on cigarette packets. Other types (usually self-adhesive) are commonly affixed to alcohol bottles.

These are used in many countries: usage is heavy especially in Eastern Europe (Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, the Baltic states etc) but they are also used in many other countries around the world (Canada, Germany, Malta, the Bahamas, the Philippines, Kenya etc).

I would be interested in acquiring excise stamps from any country - so if your country uses these stamps and you smoke or otherwise have access to them I'd be interested in organizing a trade/purchase - tell me what you'd like in return (a cover/postcard from Malta, postage stamps, other excise stamps etc) and we can work something out. :D

Note that I'd also be interested in recent regular revenue stamps - these are also still in use in many countries (France, India etc).

A few examples of excise stamps from my collection may be seen in the image above: these stamps are from the Philippines (kindly sent by member anichat), Ukraine, Italy, Lithuania, Spain and Malta.

I also have duplicates of excise stamps from Malta (both cigarettes and alcohol - more info here) and a few from some other countries if anyone's interested.

Hello,
are you interested only in "cigarettes" or in "cigars", too?
I have an excise revenue stamp for cigars from Cuba.

It's a self-adhesive stamp

Here's one from Alberta, Canada. I'd hazard a guess that we have them for all of the provinces and territories...and on that note will see what I can do about sourcing out some of the other Canadian ones for you.

Jerm65, I sent you an email last week. Did you receive it?


The letter sent by vicaf60 arrived today. It included a couple of excise stamps from Belarus (the short strips are for cigarettes, the square is for beer and the long ones are for alcohol).

They arrived in the following envelope, which is my first postal stationery item from Belarus:

Thanks a lot Victor, I'll be sending something soon. :)

Thao, I sent you an email a couple of days ago - did you receive it?

You should also write an introductory post here: https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=10277

If you sent me an email with attachments, I will never receive it. Just send an email and I will use another mail address ie Gmail.

Thanks.

Hi Thao,

The email was sent through the Stampboards messaging system, so you should receive it from a Stampboards email address (but if you reply I will receive your reply onto my own email address). Have you checked your spam folder, maybe the email ended in there? I just resent you the email again a couple of minutes ago.

If the spam folder is not the problem, maybe it's the email address itself. Do you still use the same email address which you provided when you became a member in 2015?

If you changed your email, I think you can update your email on Stampboards through the User Control Panel. Go to "Profile", then "Edit account settings", from where you should be able to change it.

Please write an introductory post as well so as to conform with the rules.

All the best! :)

I sent you two more emails - one on 29 January soon after you wrote the above post, and another one today. Did you receive anything by any chance?

I can offer various full, sealed cigarette packs from Sudan with rather high-tech tax labels, partly pictured here:

Cigarette Pack Sudan

I may also have packs from Kenya and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, but I need to verify if the labels on them are genuine tax seals or just fancy-looking decorative stickers. Cigarette packs made in South Sudan, for example, feature the latter.

Hi,

I only need cigarette tax stamps not full packs. I have no stamps from South Sudan. Please show the stamps from the other Countries I can verify the stamps.

Thanks.

I note that your heading includes "alcohol excise stamps", yet there appears to be no mention of them in the previous posts!

New Zealand currently does not have, and has not had any such specific stamps for well over 100 years, and then it was only duty on beer, as opposed to a duty on spirits.

In general, New Zealand's beer duty stamps are expensive and quite eagerly sought after.
