Another new section on WoT
« on: July 16, 2017, 10:44:04 PM »
You can now find an illustrated list of Dutch bicycle tax tokens on World of Tokens here. For the moment, we only have pictures of the normal tokens of the last 13 years, but the hunt is on for tokens for the unemployed and diplomatic bikes as well as those of the first five years.

There are also French and Belgian bicycle tax tokens. Maybe one day ...

Thanks largely to Marc Geluk, we now have illustrations of the large majority of the normal and free of charge bicycle tax tokens and even a really hard to find diplomat's token. In addition to everything else, they are excellent stylistic illustrations of the art of the thirties.

What a spectacular collection. I have but one Dutch - 1937.1938  ;D

I imagine the diplomatic tokens must be exceedingly rare.

A small but dainty new section added of a small series of little known tokens: the bus tokens of Uzbekistan. Have fun!

Merci, Gérard. C'est par le même auteur ! Evidemment, on peut être inspiré par ces pages, mais il faut quand même faire ses propres études et trouver un collectionneur volontaire qui peut livrer les images. Personnellement, je n'ai q'une seule de ces plaques, comme ils sont difficile a trouver en dehors de la France. Ce n'est pas si facile pour une site anglophone. Un jour, je suis sûr, nous parviendrons a ajouter une catégorie pour les plaques de vélos belges et françaises.
