  • Don't have a guide, but from what I've seen there isn't much variation in prices for these unless it's a cross collectible. Like brewery or big name brand on the encasement.

    Highly enthusiastic about world coins, contemporary circulating counterfeits and unusual stuff <3

    This is actually a type of Notgeld. In Germany, it is referred to as 'briefmarkengeld', essentially, 'Stamp Money'. They are listed in Menzel and some other German language guides. The most common pieces retail at around $20-$25 USD, but there are some quite scarce pieces that go in the hundreds.

    I've got some very richly inked notgeld from the 1920s. Every scene reeks of the fatherland. Peace Roy

    How do you tell a fatherland from a motherland ?

    I'll contact you with one of the Health teachers at school. She can explain it to you. ;)
