You have some super/great info here!!
I’ve just returned from a week in Rome, so will now look through all this at a leisurely pace. Thanks for reporting it all. I have never really liked those Weissenfels pieces – they don’t look like the usual muster/specimen types in my mind and they look more ‘modern’. Some of these original notgeld may well have been used for tickets or adverts etc. Pieces will also have been copied or scanned and then printed for the same sorts of things……24th September 2022 at 1:03 pm #41244
Weissenfels, Lindman 1367 and Grabowski 1403
In these two catalogs (and the PUZ) there is an entrance of the 25 Pf as M for Muster or Probedruck. On white paper and the “25” on a red field with stamp Ungültig. For the 6x 50 Pf also in the Grabowski and the PUZ.
I think there is made a mix up. See for the pictures of the 50 Pf notes at the article by Tony, below and the catalog Eintrittskarte. These notes are on white paper (I have two in my collection) and made in 1985 as admission tickets for a coin exhibition. There will be Muster pieces with a stamp Ungültig, but I think they are NOT with a red field. For the 25 Pf. I am less certain. The “new” notes were only the 6x 50 Pf.24th September 2022 at 12:23 pm #41243

EMERGENCY NOTE MOTIFS ON ADMISSION TICKETS IN THE GDR
When Kai Lindman presented “customs notes of the GDR” here a few weeks ago (PAPIER-GELD issue 8-2016), I was amazed about what is collected supra-regionally. Of course, I also have some customs notes in my collection. But they come from from the cities from which I also issue emergency money and collect other documents.
I find reprints of emergency money notes more fascinating than customs slips – after all, they are “only” nicely designed admission tickets. And the GDR had quite a bit of that to offer.
The numismatic specialist groups with their extensive exhibitions were pioneers. What was and is nicer than depicting emergency money notes on the tickets for numismatic events? You make the visitor first and give him later something to take home with you.
Notgeld notes were reprinted also used for museums, city festivals or as commemorative editions and are therefore like classify the customs documents.
Of course there was something like that in the Federal Republic and it still is today still, but here I have only listed the GDR editions that are known to me.
If you are interested in tickets, please contact me. I still have duplicates of some issues for swapping. The exhibitions at that time were mostly extremely successful, but all tickets were then but not sold.24th September 2022 at 12:10 pm #4124024th September 2022 at 12:10 pm #4123924th September 2022 at 12:09 pm #41238
