An example of a private note issue that derives its value from the stamp, inside a pocket in the note. Encased is an orange Germania 10 pfennig stamp

This one is from Bremen, made by C.A. Nicolaus and with different advertisments on front and back.

Henk

A modern example from Italy (1970's) A paper envelope with printing, containing two 50 Lire stamps. Issued by Autostrada S.p.A.

The tranlation of the text: ci scusiamo dover sopperire con francobolli alla carenze di moneta spicciola. Utillizatali per il pagamente del pedaggie, is  we apologize for having to make up for the lack of small money with stamps. Use them for the payment of the toll

I've never seen a stamp "encased" this way. Very nice, Henk.
