This is an interesting 5 mark piece of German ‘Hocker Steuer’ paper collectable dating from 1922 – its an uncatalogued ticket for a ‘bar stool’ tax. There are several variants catalogued but not this colour variant!!

These notes were issued to late-night drinkers specifically after hours, as a tax (Steuer) on their continued occupancy of a bar stool or seat (Hocker).  (Hocker can also potentially refer to the sitter himself). The notes would be issued (and dated and signed and possibly stamped) by the proprietor of the establishment who would then have to pass on the tax to the municipal authorities.
