Wertbestaendige notgeld....notes of 'fixed' value

 

 

Wertbestaendige notgeld are those issues which have a fixed value. Their face value is either in dollars US.....and linked to the 'gold' mark, or they are for a 'commodity'.

 

 

 

Wertbestaendige notgeld are all dated at the end of 1923 and it appears that about 700 places issued them. Those with money values (about 85% of the issues) are either in US dollars and/or Goldmarks or Goldpfennigs. The note above is for a value of 6 goldmarks and was issued by 'Hamburgische Frauenhilfe'. It is catalogued as LSK148, using the new 2002 Hamburg paper money issues catalogue, by Lindman, Stolzenberg & Kirstein.

The following scan shows 2 scarce wertbestaendige pieces of notgeld issued in Luebben with fairly high face values of 8.40 goldmarks and 21 goldmark. They catalogue under 'L037' in Kai Lindman's new 'Das wertbestaendige Notgeld von 1923/24' catalogue, published in 2008. They have a catalogue value of either 150 or 200 euros in used condition!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The following scan shows another scarce/rare piece, this time issued in Hoechst a. Main. The piece is dated '6 November 1923 and has a face value of 5Goldmark. It catalogues as 'H052a' in Kai Lindman's 'Das wertbestaendige Notgeld von 1923/24' and catalogue value is 350 euros!

 

 

 

 

 

The notes illustrated below are made of velvet and leather and were issued in Bielefeld and Osterwieck. The leather notes, for 1 Goldmark were issued on different coloured leather. I have green, white, brown and red. All have similar fronts and backs as depicted by the 2 notes shown. I have been told that these Osterwieck notes are 'Spenden- und Erinnerungsscheine'! That is, they are commemerative issues.

 


 

The idea behind linking the German currency to the Dollar was that it would hopefully make it more stable and help the German money to maintain a constant value.
