Tax seal

Either extensions to a matchbox label or separate additional labels that act as seals on each end of a matchbox to demonstrate it has not been previously opened and that tax has been paid. When a single tax seal is long enough to seal both ends of a matchbox it is termed a banderole. Mint and complete used tax seals are rarely seen. See also banderole and tax stamp.
