Pseudo Money for Theaters
« on: September 03, 2013, 01:46:10 AM »
This month's issue of KulturSpiegel (a supplement of Der Spiegel) has an article about what theaters sometimes do when money is needed. Not the kind of money you need to run a theater ;) but when paper money is needed for a stage play. Next to the text (in German) you see several "pseudo notes", such as a 53 note featuring Maxim Gorki or a US $1 bill with Goethe ...

This is the PDF file that shows the two pages. If the link does not work, go here and click the "Artikel als PDF" link on the left.

Here is one such item from my collection:

An imitation of the former British 5 note produced for MGM Studios.
Have a look at  my tokens and my banknotes.

Fun stuff! They should sell it for extra income. I'd buy it, maybe others would see the Spass as well. Had a bit of trouble seeing the SUV until I tilted my head in the right direction. Now, I can no longer see what I saw before.
