Certificate Vignette
There are 12 spaces on the left side of the certificate so it could be punched to represent the month the tax was paid. Please note that the scan clipped the item a little on the left due to the size of the certificate. These are really nice looking certificates that will present nicely in a frame. Republicans phased out unpopular war excise taxes throughout the late eighteen sixties and early seventies, except for sin taxes on alcohol, tobacco, and certain luxury items. Tobacco and alcohol excises were consistent money-makers, providing nearly 50% of the federal tax revenues by the 1890s.
