Funny fake money
« on: September 07, 2015, 12:16:56 AM »
In the course of many years, a few fake banknotes landed in my lap. Some weeks ago in Berlin, we were eating at an excellent Italian restaurant, when, like lightning, a little old man dropped banknotes on some tables before being shooed away by the restaurant owner.
I managed to acquire one, and here it is: from the "Imperial Mint of the Clochards", the Emperor Kasimir, and it rather looked as if it was Rumpelstilzchen himself handing out the banknotes of 50,99 Euros.

It was in East-Berlin, the restaurant (Trattoria Felice) was on the Helmholtz-Platz, it was an extremely agreeable neighbourhood, I will go there again and hope to see old Kasimir another time. And now you know where it was, you can go there, too.
