“Come to the German Society’s Ratskeller on October 19th at 2:30 pm for a presentation about Notgeld! This is an opportunity to reflect on this unique era in German history and marvel at our presenters’ wonderful collection, which will be on display during the presentation and the coffee hour that will follow. German Notgeld (“emergency money”) was primarily issued during World War I and during the hyperinflation years that followed. Towns, local savings banks, municipalities, as well as private or state-owned firms printed their own, often very colorful Notgeld, like the example shown on the left.
If your parents or relatives left you some of these treasures, including the very large denomination currency printed during the Weimar Republic, we invite you to bring them as your own show-and-tell examples.
Our two collector/presenters, Dr. Carl Renner and Pamela Stitely, are involved with the Wilmington Coin Club and the Currency Club of Chester County.
Please RSVP to the office via phone or email. We hope to see you there!”
