The theme of this book is the so-called 'ox-wagon licences'and gives their history and background of why these badges must surely rate as one of the least known areas of badge collecting in the world and is even more so restricted mainly to Southern Africa.
This book gives the history of the Wheel Tax Badges used in the Protectorate of South West Africa. Also included, is a short history of the wagon tax system in German South West Africa. It is lavishly illustrated with pictures of the badges themselves as well as copies of various documents relating to the badges. The pictures of the badges contained in this boos must surely constitute one of the rarest of occasions where all the Wheel Tax Badges of South West Africa can be seen together in one handy book.
This book is a must on the bookshelf of every badge or token collector who is seeking information regarding the Wheel Tax Badges of the Protectorate of South West Africa.
