Westphalia notgeld token
« on: February 11, 2017, 12:10:26 AM »
Some time ago I acquired a token which was well outside my normal field, a 1923 Westphalian notgeld piece for 50 million marks. I was just fascinated by the denomination, and also the impressive size (44 mm, 33 gm).

Last week I was able to acquire seven more of the series, ranging from 1 to 500 marks, and in date from 1921-1923. On the packets they came in are references to 2 catalogues, 'Jaeger' and 'Funck'. Though I usually subscribe to the 'buy the book before the coin' idea, I have no desire to expand into tokens in general, so don't really want to spend a lot on these catalogues. I was wondering therefore if anyone who has them would be kind enough to let me have scans of just the pages which cover the Westphalian 1921-1923 issues?

Thank you

Alan

I hope someone reacted by PM. If not, the information you are looking for may be here.

I will send you the page scans. My friend recently gifted me a German notgeld catalogue.

Beautiful piece BTW

@ Peter, I'm afraid qaziright's offer is the first one.

I now have 10 of the series, and I have tried to sort them out by the references quoted by the various sellers on ebay as well as the ones I've bought. The result is this list of what I know should be available (the ones I have in bold), but I'd very much appreciate any corrections, further details of varieties and mintages. I know the earlier ones were struck by Heinrich Kissing, but information as to who struck the later ones (or confirmation it was also Kissing) would be welcome.

@ qaziright, I'd be very grateful for any information you can give me.

Thanks to both of you

Alan

According to the Jaeger catalog, the Westfalen pieces were produced by Heinrich Kissing, Menden except for the following ones:
N16-N19: Schulte Devotionalien und Metallindustrie, Menden
N20b, N22, N23b: Berlin Mint, gilded by Kissing
N26, N27: Berlin Mint
N25: mostly (248,500) Kissing, but also (47,289) Deumer, Lüdenscheid and (94,300) Lauer, Nürnberg.
