Hopefully this question wasn't answered before (Even though with the amount if knowledge people has here I am sure it did): What is the meaning behind the tax strips that has Lem's face on them?
I recently came across several miniatures with these and wanted to know the difference between these and ones from the same year without them.
Graphically-wise, they look so much nicer than the red boring U.S tax stamps

The Lem tax seals were export bottles compared to the red eagle tax seals for USA

Yep and on all bottles with the Lem seal must be a special Export back label also! The lightgreen / white Lem seals are made from 1967 to early '69 from end of 1969 to 1979 they use the black / white version from this special Export seals ;) end of '79 they start to put a red / white eagle seal over the neck what is just stamped with Export! At this time use the most Importers her own Export back or side labels. My two cents
