Prisoner of War Notgeld

 

During the first world war, notes were issued by prisoner of war camps. Sometimes these camps held officers and non-commissioned soldiers. Others appear to have held only officers. The money issued by the camps was only valid in that particular camp. If the POW moved camp, he would be issued the new camp's money.......for performing chores and tasks etc. he would then be able to spend it at that camp.

The above note was issued for the Officer P.O.W. camp at Torgau. In this set there are different valued notes, each with a different vertical or horizontal bar. Up to and including the 1m note, the coloured bar is vertical; greater than 1m, the bar is horizontal.


Another POW note is shown below, this time from the Wildemann Officer prisoner-of-war camp, which was located near Hannover. It catalogues as 'Wildemann.15' in Tieste's new hardback POW catalogue, with a catalogue value of 25 euros in uncirculated condition. The back of the note is plain. there is no watermark in the paper and this note has no stamp mark. Some issues from the POW camp were issued on linen and their values are around 250 euros each in uncirculated condition!
