Münze Hall und Münzerturm, HQ

Here is a video (pretty well done) and it is about the place where my rolled repro Aluminum "coin" came from that I posted about earlier in this thread.

The narration is in German, and while my German is not good enough to catch it all,. it is good enough to stay interested for the short time the video runs.  I am grateful the narrator speaks slowly  ;D

Don't forget to lower the volume of your speaker before watching the video ;)

I remembered seeing such postcards at some time in the distant past - as soon as I read your post.

It might well be that I last saw some of these postcards from a link on rec.collecting.coins in a post (by a postcard dealer - very likely U.S. based) titled "Numismatics on postcards" dated 4th June 2000.....   I had to look back at rec.collecting.coins to remember the details of the post e.g the year, title etc.. - of course. The postcard website seems to have gone completely now.

What are the odds that the collector at "coinsgb" has that actual set offered in 2000 ?

Thanks Mr Paul Baker
