Playing-Card Tax Stamps from Luxemburg
The Grand Duchy of Luxemburg never had a playing-card tax, so they did not
have tax stamps on cards. Nevertheless you can find cards with a Luxemburg stamp.
These stamps were used because Germany had asked for them. The idea was
to inhibit illegal re-import to Germany with fake tax stamps.
This is a stamp used from 1905 to 1911.
The text is 'Grossh. Luxemburg' (for 'Grand Duchy Luxemburg') and a
control number ('9').
(from a scan by José Luiz G. Pagliari)
This stamp was used after 1911.
The text is 'Großh. Luxemburg' (for 'Grand Duchy Luxemburg'),
'in Deutschland steuerpflichtig' ('subject to taxation in Germany'), and a
control number ('6').
The stamp was on the Ace of Hearts.
