Saw a nice blog by an antiquarian bookseller who, like me, loves German Notgeld of the 1910s and 1920s.
Recently I bought this 1921 'banknote' for its sheer typographical beauty. I hope you like it, too.


Agree, very pretty and iconical for the time period !


By the way, in the top picture of the blog, two notes from the same series as my Gera-Reuss 25 Pfennig note may be spotted, you can see it if you look at the reverse.
The text says "Arm nun wieder und nur ein Schein-Leben": 'Poor again and only a sham life'.


A very depressing, but equally beautifull, picture !
