A fascinating banknote in this 50 pfennig example from Waren Mueritz in the district of Mecklenburg. The note is beautiful condition and has been well stored.
As a side effect of the hyperinflation in the Weimar Republic around 70 towns took to printing this special type of money which meant only for collectors of emergency money banknotes.
The notes were placed on sale after their validity date had expired. It was done as a means of local revenue raising to keep money in the region and sure up town accounts with some surplus. They were only released in 10, 25 and 50 penny notes.
Many of these Reutergeld notes had wonderful designs and they specifically had quotes by the well known Mecklenburg poet, Fritz Reuter.
