Featuring the full portrait of Professor Dr. H. Landois as “The Smoker”, this notgeld serienschein / emergency money series issued from Ahaus in 1921 is a slightly humorous look at the era of hyperinflation in Germany.
The note is in great condition and like many of the notes issued during hyperinflation they were printed to raise revenue by selling them mainly as collectors pieces and not as currency to be spent.
Here is a great opportunity to add “The Smoker” to your Deutsche Notgeld collection.
