General Information
A french law dated 28th April 1893 declared that owners of velocipedes would be subject to an annual tax of 10 francs. Bike tags (plaques de velo) were issued annually, brass on uneven years and white metal on even years. In 1942, with war in Europe there was no metal available so stamps replaced the tags from 1943-48. From 1949 to 1959 a form was given in receipt for the tax. It was entitled "plaque de velo".
