T1613 REVENUE / Cigarette Tax 189? Cigarette Box Tax Band (371mm x 30mm) with no quantity or duty specified.

Printed in reddish lilac and pale grey-green with the ZAR Coat-of-Arms within a central circle with wording ‘BAND / VOOR / CIGARETTENDOOS / Z.A. REPUBLIEK’ in surrounding scrolls. Interestingly, ‘L.G.K. LITHO’ printed below the left scroll appears to indicate the name of the printer. Vertical folds as to be expected from affixing to the container, otherwise in remarkably fine condition. Apparently unrecorded in either Barefoot or the Transvaal Study Circle Revenue handbook.
