Cape/Mafeking. 1899-1900 BOER WAR RATION TOKEN (Beige) for FREE SOWEN (OAT PORRIDGE). Serial No. 130, black text ‘MAFEKING GARRISON SOWEN TICKET FREE’. Text at bottom reads ‘Issued by Capt. MORE, Railway Division’. Very fine with some staining and ‘dog-eared’ top left corner. THESE TOKENS ARE VERY RARE AND HARDLY EVER FOUND IN GOOD CONDITION. THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE HISTORIC ITEM IN THAT IT WAS PHYSICALLY HANDLED AND USED BY SOMEONE WHO WAS THERE, LIVING, AT THE TIME OF THIS DREADFUL WAR.
