Bicycle

These are tags for bicycle and showed that a special tax, called "contributo manutenzione stradale" (tax for road maintenance) had been paid. As you can see from the pictures, they're oblong to be attached to the bike as a ring at the steering. I don't know too much about them, but I was told that they were used until the Second World War: anyway bicycles don't pay any tax today.

Many thanks to Louis Fierens, to Roberto Pola and to Alessandro De Zuani for the pictures.
