These two notes are in great condition as per the pictures here.
The 20 and 50 Heller notes are a currency denomination that is equal to half a pfennig.
This is akin to the half pence issued in British territories.
The bank notes depict local scenes and the bird life indigenous to the lakes of the national park that surrounds the area of Sternberg.
A great little duo to add to your collection.
