Uncut sheets

Uncut sheets of notgeldscheine

Very desirable amongst notgeld collectors, are sheets of notgeld that have remained uncut. When notgeld were printed in the different printing houses and firms across Germany, usually they would have been inspected and then cut up into individual notes and then stamped with their serial numbers or been passed through the numerator machine, ready for distribution by the issuing authority – the local town savings bank or a private company or whoever had requested the print run.

In some cases a collector might be lucky enough to come across print sheets where they have not been made into the individual notgeld pieces. Usually the serial numbers will be missing on these pieces so the average price per notgeld here would be 15-25 euros each (as opposed to 1 or 2 euros for the serialled/numbered ‘normal and more common’ piece). If you multiply that then, by the number of pieces in the uncut sheet…….. and then add about 10-25% on top ……because it is a special uncut sheet you are purchasing for your collection………then you can see the prices of these sheets is going to be quite high. I think every collector should try and get at least one of these uncut sheets into their collection. They are good talking points too.

Here are a few examples of uncut sheets I managed to collect (and which I am now slowly selling off to other interested collectors) …………. most of which, were purchased from large auction houses in Germany :
