Karlsruhe 1 goldmark – the uniface piece, which is made of pink coloured paper is in ‘used but very good’ condition (it has 1 slight crease mark on it where it was once folded in half). It was issued by the ‘Studentendienst‘ (Student Service). Please see scan. A lovely note with an interesting history……..as it was part of the collection that belonged previously to Kai Lindman! The note is dated ’10. Oktober 1923.’  (I do have further pieces from this series that also belonged to Kai Lindman if you want to get in touch…..)

(The issuer of the note, ‘Karlsruher Studentendienst e.V.’  was the student services organisation of what was then the institute of technology (Technische Hochschule) of Karlsruhe (it didn’t become a university until 1967). It still exists today –  or, rather, it was re-established under the same name in 1948, its previous incarnation having been subsumed into the National Socialist Reichsstudentenwerk in 1934 under the Gleichschaltung or ‘Nazification’ of all German associations and organisations.)
