Highly collectable are pieces that are made of velvet! There are several different pieces to collect, all issued in Bielefeld. Below is a ‘wertbestaendige’ piece on yellow-gold velvet with a face-value of 50 GOLDMARK. It was issued by the ‘Stadt-Sparkasse Bielefeld’ (The Bielefeld Town Savings Bank) and is dated ’15 DEZEMBER 1923′.

Another piece issued on yellow-gold velvet, has ‘2 characters’ as its central design. (There is a seperate article available to GNCC members which details the graphic in more detail and that shows some wonderful variant pieces too!) Below is the ‘normal’ piece with no edging or border:

9 different oval shaped pieces in velvet exist for the collector! The scan below shows the 3 different designs and the 3 different colours – so for example the ‘baby holding the turnip’ comes in the red ……… well as yellow-gold and purple, as do the other designs. All the face-values are the same, (ie) 4.20 Goldmark / 1 Dollar US.

For further info about these velvet issues and to see more velvet pieces, please refer to article ‘Velvet (extra info)’, available only to my GNCC members. One more very special treat to show all interested collectors, as this piece is now owned by an undisclosed GNCC member : face value is uniquely for 20 Goldmark

GNCC members can see the framed piece and signature on the ‘ Velvet (extra info)’ article and read a little more info about it, there.
