50 Pfennig Spielkarten Notgeld Card                                SKU# 123035C

Notgeld, or "necessity money" was issued by institutions that were not authorized for money emissions around the end of the First World War. It was therefore not legal tender, but rather a mutualally-accepted means of payment. Mainly issued in paper form, many other mediums were utilized including coins, leather, silk, linen, stamps, aluminium foil, coal, and porcelain. One of the rarest forms of Notgeld were the Spielkarten or "playing cards" which makes this fantastic item a great, unique piece of German monetary history! Whether you're a seasoned collector, just starting out or even just looking to possibly make some profit, this card is definitely something you won't want to miss out on!
