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').

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.
