    stoff is ‘material’ so stoffgeld are pieces made of linen, silk, velvet, jute, aluminium foil etc. As soon as you have a few of these types in your collection, you realise how beautiful they are and start wanting more. I did it with the 100m pieces (silk and linen)….which were …and still are….my real passion and expertise.

    Here is a nice example:

    Dark pink silk with dark purple border – piece catalogues as ‘NGM04-2c-ns

    Vicken – I will look into this when things are a bit quieter at this end. If you find a good source, you might not want to share that with everyone + and I have to say this, I want people to buy their notgeld from my shop!! If we did it amongst ourselves – that would be a good thing I think. What does anyone think?

    Tieste’s site (http://www.tieste.de) is a good indication of a price you can expect to pay for a note…..if he is selling it and it is listed in his different categories. I have known Reinhard for nearly 30 years and visited him at his home once. MA-Shops is another very good source……..but like anything, can seem expensive if you are buying just 1 note and the postage is the same amount as the note you are buying! You will get to know sellers over time and little things like the way they package notes up………..might amaze you……..in a bad way! eBay – just be careful.

    I too would be interested in other sites for notgeld. One I know is tieste.de, he’s pretty good.

    Tony… this may not be immediately feasible, but can we have a buy/sell/trade area on this forum please?

    Hi John Adams!

    For starters: this is the very 1st time in my whole life that I participate in a forum, so I hope I’ll get everything right, so not having the uploads landing on Mars and such,,,,

    Like you, I have lots of “favourites”, but one of them really got me enthusiastic, and that is Wenzel Hablik’s Itzehoe-series. It still gives me the feeling this guy was 100 years ahead of his time! This thing might have been published just 20 years ago! Although it’s different of course from an art-historical point of view!

    I will now try to upload an image, and as I said: I hope it won’t end up on Mars !

    Hi Daniel Gerken,

    Do you know the nice Luther-notes from Erfurt, by the noted artist Alfred Hanf? And the series from Eisenach and Halle / Saale? There are lots of series about Luther, as well as stamps and postcards, to enhance your collection!

    I wish you much success with building-up your collection,

    Hi Gary,

    I’ve been on the collecting-front for about  2 1/2 years now , and a GNCC member for, give or take some months, 1 1/2 yrs.

    Having lived in structural poverty for years, I built up a small-time stamp-collection with the middle-ages as central theme. Stamps being rather small, I started complementing them with postcards and some notgeld, and yes, I got hooked ! Especially when I found the products of Louis Koch, Halberstadt. What made them attractive to me was the nice artwork, done by a comprehensive number of artists, so very recognizable most of the time. You’ll find a complete illustrated listing of Koch-notes elsewhere on this site.

    An anorexic wallet and curiosity caused me  to search the web for Koch-notes fairly singlemindedly, and then comparing the offers until I was sure to have the cheapest of (momentary) all.

    Although 98% of all trades went perfectly straight, I also met some less agreable denizens of the web…

    My suggestions to you are: 1. You could become a source yourself, selling the doubles for a soft price might help a lot of beginners lay a foundation for a nice collection. 2. Choose one theme at a time and search and compare, by doing so you’ll learn to compare and memorize. I also make intense use of Google Maps, Wikipedia and a lot of atlasses. 3. Keep file of, and watch the sites you find, like auctioneers, there are many more than Catawili alone.

    I won’t show you “the rear of my tongue” (as the Dutch say), discoverinf and finding out (for) yourself seems much more fun to me, but if you’re left with any questions or remarks. I’d be happy  to share what I know !!

    And, last but not least: Tony created one hell of a nice collectors-club !!

    Cordially, Charles

    As a retired Lutheran minister, I collect notgeld that features Martin Luther, or the places he is associated with.  Before I found Tony’s website, it was rather hit or miss in finding information and items for my collection.  Tony has helped a lot in my search, as well as providing translations for many of the notes.  Since being a member of GNCC, I have enjoyed the articles on the wide variety of notgeld available, as well as their history.

    When I used to log my collection I had a spreadsheet with different tabs for the different notgeld categories……..so a tab for serienscheine and another for verkehrsausgaben and another for prisoner-of-war etc etc.

    I had columns for  Catalogue number: Place of issue: Date of notes: Face values: Number of pieces in set/complete: cat.value. Similar to image below. I would always now, add in a couple of extra columns for ‘comments’ & points of interest or things to be aware of…….

    When I started mine, Lindman (Lm.) was the only catalogue available…..but nowadays you have Gr/Mehl (Grabowski/Mehl). For serienscheine you have to decide which catalogue you are going to use I guess. It also depends on how exact the record you are making needs to be. It is just a basic reference or is it ‘everything about a note/set?’. Variants aren’t listed at all well in Gr/Mehl. :negative:

    I just started collecting Notgeld (I’m a stamp collector) and was wondering how people preferred to organize their collections. I use a lot of the books and sleeves by Leuchtturm/Lighthouse so I have a good sense of how to store the notes. However, I started to make a spreadsheet to catalog the notes I have and was trying to think of the different fields. Anyone have advice or thoughts to share? Thanks! :wacko:

    I have added a new category to the shop for ‘German / Polish’ notgeld. Whilst updating some products, I noticed this interesting piece from Koenigshuette:

    The obverse is in German, whilst the reverse is in Polish. German = Koenigshuette : Polish = Krolewska Huta. The date of the German/Polish plebiscite (People’s vote or referendum / volksabstimmung) can be seen on the note – ‘20.3.1921’.

    They are private verkehrsausgaben notgeld, issued by the Duren ‘Konsum- und Sparverein’ (Co-op and savings association). There are 7 different face values and they all catalogue at 15 euros each. Several variants exist where the font of the face value (WZ) is slightly different.

    I attach a scan of the 3 pieces in my shop for other collectors to see. B-)

    Graham – I hope my notgeld website and GNCC are good resources for you…… and anyone who is really passionate about the subject. I think that because notgeld are such a specific area of the more general ‘banknote collecting’ sphere, there just had to be a very specialised website for it all!! ;-)

    Hi Mike! – Dueren issued notgeld from these 5 different categories, according to Monika Pick’s ‘notgeld-mufti’:

    Kleingeld (1916-1921), Serienscheine, Grossgeld, Inflationsgeld 1922 & Inflationsgeld 1923.

    So you won’t find any 1914 notgeld issues from Dueren or any wertbestaendige issues either. Hope that helps?

    I just wanted to drop in quickly and say “HI!”  My notgeld collecting has unfortunately taken a back seat to a full time job AND starting a new business, so I likely won’t be a frequent visitor for a while.

    When I am active, my collecting is limited to notes (and coins) from Stadt Duren.  Once I complete that collection (I’m getting close) I’ll start expanding.  I think I will move on to another town, or possibly region.  Or maybe just go after it all! :wacko:

    If anyone has any Duren gems they’d like to part with, I’d be glad to take a look!

    This was the first ever German notgeld I collected. I thought it looked like some kind of matchbox label because of its size. Whenever I come across it at flea markets or sales, it always takes me back to a time when I was a young boy, just 10 years old!!

    Hi Gary!

    Thanks for your first post.may there be many more in the future.

    Best source is my shop, but I would say that wouldn’t I!! They do tend to be slightly better or scarcer pieces, but there are ‘common’ pieces for sale too.

    EBay can be good sometimes but I have definitely been burnt a few times now, so you do have to be careful. Poor descriptions, ‘too good to be true’ prices…..and then with a big problem when the pieces arrive…… etc etc. You tend to find the sellers you can trust. You don’t have to be too concerned about fakes with notgeld…….except maybe the scarcer types very, very occasionally something just looks wrong to me. Any questions with anything like that, I’m sure someone on this specialised forum can help

    These are very interesting notes Graham. There is a green one and a yellow one that go with these 2 – do you have those? otherwise, I will see if I have any spare ones here for you….

    There is an article about these notes somewhere on the notgeld.com website, with translations, as they have interesting info on them, especially the names on the fronts. ‘Hanke‘ (bottom right) is probably the most important one as he was the Director of the Bielefeld Stadtsparkasse (Town Savings Bank)…..that issued all the silk, linen and velvet notgeld!!

    Hello all:  I’m basically a new collector.  I started collecting a bit less than a year ago.  Somehow, browsing Ebay, I came across a photo of a Notgeld, looked interesting, so I ordered it.  Then, looking further on Ebay I saw a lot of other Notgeld, also interesting looking, so I bought some of it.

    That started my collection.  Since then, I learned that it’s far more cost efficient to buy Notgeld in groupings, lots, or albums.  So, I check Ebay occasionally to see if any Notgeld albums are available, and if so, I either order or bid on them.  One problem with this is that I purchased several groupings of Notgeld from someone in … Korea, I think.  There were about a thousand Notgeld in all, but many of them were in terrible condition, folded, marks from rusted paper clips, and worst of all, worm eaten edges.

    I’ve also bid for and won a number of collections, mostly in albums, from a Dutch auction site called Catawiki.  The result is that I must have 10 to 20 thousand pieces now, many doubles, and mostly cheapies.  Also, some Austrian Notgeld and some Verkehrausgaben, most of which are not too  interesting for me.  I’m also sitting with about 12 albums that I haven’t gone through yet.

    From about last April on, Notgeld collecting was my primary activity.  My two other activities, collecting Silver Strikes and playing computer games took a back seat.  The Notgeld finally started coming out of my ears, so I’m taking a several week hiatus before getting back to it.

    When I’ve gone through the remaining albums I’ll finally be in a position to collect more selectively.  Then I’ll go through my collections, see what’s missing, and act accordingly.

    The only collecting help I’ve had is from this website.  Being new to the hobby, I’ve made lots of mistakes, but then it’s a learning process, I suppose.

    So, my question to you all is:  What are your sources for obtaining Notgeld?  Which are good ones, which bad ones?  Have you been burned sometimes?

    All notgeld collectors should be aware to check what you think are ‘duplicates’ – they might not be! There are very small differences is several notes that a collector will love. Here is a good example. What differences can you spot?

    Hi Graham, welcome to a fascinating hobby!  Not sure how many notes I have exactly, but I’ve currently got 206 albums holding about 60 notes each at a guesstimated average (most albums have 15 pages or so of between 3 and 6 notes each, so say on average 4 per page), which makes it probably just over 12,000 notes.  The more and more I’ve accumulated, the more I’ve had to reorganise the collection so that I can actually locate notes and sets; it’s this organising and the research enabling it that has been such a large part of the pleasure of collecting!  My wife says it keeps me indoors and keeps me out of trouble.  She not (ever) wrong – whoever heard of a Notgeld-collecting hooligan?

    Just started collecting and found a pack of 100 from a coin shop on eBay. It was a nice way to survey the field and figure out where I want to go in collecting. Since I teach a physics class I’ve been surprised to find notgeld illustrating optics – especially in towns like Jena and Wetzlar which are the homes of Zeiss and Leitz. I also enjoy a lot of German poetry and literature. I’m pretty amazed how these are such a great historical record! – Gordon

    The black lines making up the background to the place where the serial numbers would usually be are called ‘raster’. In the catalogues you might see for example…….’KN-Raster mit 7 linien’ or ‘KN-raster mit 13 linien’………so now you know it refers to that shaded area where the serial number goes. Hope the forum info is helping?

    On the note Kahla G/M 668.10.3, Deutscher Michel is sweeping away the discarded values of a society which has lost its way.  Alongside an old spring and a broken cup and what may be an old shoe with its sole hanging off, we see a bible and various commandments, quotations and proverbs concerning righteous living : “Thou shalt not kill” (Exodus 20 : 13); “Thou shalt not commit adultery” (Exodus 20 : 14); “Thou shalt not steal” (Exodus 20 : 15);  “Love your neighbour as yourself” (the Great Commandment from Matthew 22 : 39); “Pray and work” ( St Benedict of Nursia’s Rule : Ora et labora); “Do what is right and fear no one” (Latin proverb : Recte fac, neminem time); “Be as one! As one! As one!” (Attinghausen in Friedrich Schiller’s drama Wilhelm Tell, Act 4, Scene 2); “Honesty is the best policy” (English equivalent to the German proverb,which literally says : “Honesty lasts longest”); and “Always practise faithfulness and decency” (from Mozart’s The Magic Flute, with lyrics based on a poem by Ludwig Hoelty, this was a very popular piece of music in Prussia – the melody rang out from the carillion of Potsdam’s Garrison Church from 1797 to 1945).

    In the set of 6, I would say I like this one the best. Just noticed after uploading the picture, that its one to add to the Deutscher Michel article!:

    Kahla 668.10.5Here’s an upload of Kahla G/M 668.10.5 Einigkeit macht stark : “Unity makes for strength”.   The more I look at the guy in the corner, the more I can see Munch’s “The Scream” – except that here the screaming figure isn’t clutching his own head, he’s being grasped by the ears by an opponent.  It’s a splendid trompe l’oeil.

    The figure on the left is Deutscher Michel, the personification of the German People. He is almost always shown, wearing his nightcap. At the time of these notes, the German people were struggling with food shortages and economic collapse.

    You can only post once, under a topic, without having to wait 5 minutes to post again – I think those are the ’embedded rules’ inherited with this forum software…….. we can check as we go along. I just posted once and it was all ok. I then added a 2nd post and it ‘disappeared’……. we will do our best to iron out these anomalies.

    Here are my favourite 2 pieces of German notgeld. They were some of the earliest pieces I stumbled upon and collected. Due to their very colourful and artistic graphics, I was then hooked on collecting notgeld………..and still am, nearly 50 years on from then!

    It would be nice to get an upload from your own computer option though…….like normal, so you can just select the picture you want to upload to the forum.

    Slight issue – you have to give access to the people to see your album / photo. I have done that for you John.
    If you click on the link in my forum post, do you get to see the picture.
    Kunal – I take it you can’t see anything if you click on the link in my forum post??

    Its a bit of mucking about………..
    Edge is looking for a plug in image uploaded we can use hopefully. Not sure what the ‘IMG’ button actually does then here?
    I’ll keep playing……………

    Just a general question to all in the forum as a test and taster – what’s your favourite piece of Notgeld in your collection, and why?
    I have so many favourites, but one I keep returning to is Note 5 (“Einigkeit macht stark”) of the Kahla Political Series (Grabowski Mehl 668.10 / 668.11, Lindmann 650i). Drawn by the Norwegian artist Olaf Gulbransson who was a mainstay of the Munich satirical magazine Simplicissimus, it shows such a delightfully chaotic free-for-all between the various classes of German society. A pleasing little detail in the bottom left-hand corner is what appears to be a nod to fellow Norwegian Edvard Munch’s “The Scream”.

    If you have private verkehrsausgaben notgeld and want to know their catalohue value and don’t have the quite expensive Tieste pair of catalogues……..please just ask!

    These pieces were issued by the ‘H. Heye’ glass factory so are known as ‘private’ issues. (Pieces issued by private companies). You will therefore NOT find them in the Gr/Mehl catalogues unfortunately. They are however, listed by the much better and fully comprehensive Tieste verk. catalogue(s). They catalogue at 10 euros each and a full set consists of 6 pieces (as shown above).

    I have 7 different coloured border pieces here that I am selling. They would make a great addition to anyone’s banknote / notgeld collection for sure.
    You can always contact me by email direct (rather than this forum) if you want to sort out a deal for any of my notgeld.

    Lets try and use the topics that I have already set up. If we get a demand for others we can add them if required.
    Otherwise, on forums like this, you just end up with countless number of threads that only a few people will see and read.

    1 great notgeld topic or thread will keep the collectors viewing it and hopefully adding their comments in too, so over time, it improves and gets really good viewings and additional information for everyone!

    I will move new topics that I think aren’t warranted, to under our main ‘general notgeld chit-chat’ topic.

    ‘Tiemer’ & ‘Delion’
