Apart from metal issues, notgeld was usually made of paper. Occasionally it was issued in other forms, including card, silk, linen, jute, chamois leather, leather, aluminium foil, velvet and by using such things as playing cards (spielkarton) or compressed coal dust (as below)!!
Issue numbers for these black/graphite compressed coal dust pieces were very limited. They issued:
- 100m - 2500 pieces
- 500m - 2500 pieces
- 1000m - 3500 pieces
(On the fronts of the 500m & 1000m pieces, is a man with 'S. 'F' on each side of him. I believe this stands for 'Sepp Frank').
BE CAREFUL OUT THERE - THERE ARE WORTHLESS FAKES/FORGERIES, MADE IN CHINA, BEING SOLD ON EBAY!!!!!!!!!
THESE PIECES SHOULD BE BLACK/GRAPHITE IN COLOUR (AS ABOVE), NOT GOLD OR BROWN (AS BELOW)!! EVEN WHERE THE CHIPS IN THE EDGES ARE, IT IS GOLD/BROWN - ABSOLUTE RUBBISH!!!!!
PLEASE HELP BY REPORTING THE DAFT FRAUDSTERS TO EBAY!!
