Bielefeld Intro.

<!Some of you may have come across this very 'shiny' piece, with scalloped edges and embroidered reverse.  If you look closely, the size of the thick black border which contains all the imagery, is about 5mm smaller than on all the other 100m material pieces. This 'shiny' piece is a modern forgery/fake/replica! We don't know who made it, manufactured it or distributed it. A panel of 'experts' have discussed this piece in detail and think it was made somewhere between the years 2004-2014. My catalogue on these types will be amended and clarified at next re-publishing time..............I stated it back then as ' a possible forgery'. Now we know for certain!! The piece is highly reactive under UV - non of the original 100 mark material pieces are. Also, the difference in 'box' size can be seen in the following scans, where only the top note in each scan is the modern replica/forgery piece!  Luckily, for collectors, this fake is very easy to spot. It is 'shiny'. Another very easy check for anyone to do is to measure the outside width size of the thick black bordered box (containing all the imagery). It is always :original - 83-84mm long : fake - 78mm long.>

<!The piece has been examined under magnification and 'coloured dots' can be seen all over it as well as other tell-tell signs. (digital). The Bielefeld sparkasse archive have been advised and I am updating this website now, to help collectors. The shiny note is trying to 'mimic' a very rare 'FRANZOSISCHER' 100 mark embroidered piece that catalogues at 'LP' price.........whatever a collector is wishing to pay for it and usually over the 1000 euro price. It is a still a lovely looking piece and one that should be sought for your collection - and marked up as 'modern replica' - but don't spend more than 100 euros getting one.>
