Well, it is not my deck. I do have the ones with the tax stamps, this is the deck of a friend who was sold this as over 100 years old, I think, complete with the authentic box. I think that the box is indeed the authentic one, but not for the cards contained within it...It will always remain a beautiful deck, but I feel concerned that my friend may have been deceived.
He works with old documents and such, and did feel that the cards had about them an air of age.
I think yours is indeed "older" since the tax stamp logic does not seem to apply. So, what's true about tax stamps need not be true about your (your friend's) cards.
