notgeld beermats

I recently came upon these beermats from the private German brewery ‘Heinrich Reissdorf’, located in Koeln (Cologne), so I thought I would show them all. There is a set of 12 different beermats which each depict a notgeld issue from Koeln. Reverse of the beermats is shown first:

I think they are a nice way of relating back to the early 1920’s when life was hard and the economy was failing. The actual notgeld pieces shown on the beermats are a mix of serienscheine, verkehrsausgaben and inflationary notgeld issues.

When we hopefully are able to visit Cologne, in the future, we will sure make a trip to the brewery or one of their outlets!!
