Zandvoort today is a beach resort town in the Netherlands. I'm wondering if this comes from nazi occupied Holland.

Is lt from WWI? The Netherlands remained neutral during the first world war.

My "Checklist of World Notgeld" lists Zandvoort as only issuing "Class 14" items - WWII issues.

Edit to add: it lists these tokens in "Price category B" - up to the $60 mark.

Just curious....what is meant by a class 14 item, and why the differing price categories?

It's simply the very abbreviated way the catalogue reports the existence and rarity of items. Category 14 is "World War II issues", and the rarity/price grades run from A "to $25" up to E "to $350".

Germany has had some inflation money which was used for hotels and such places with numbers exceeding from 1 till 500, which stood for the amount of pfennig witch was necessary to buy a meal or drink at the hotel.

After Hitler gained power, the new Reichsmark replaced all those city and traffic and tourist-coins for money that was value for the entire Reich instead of one house, one street or one village.

After being rejected from circulation, some Dutch hotels bought by the kilogramme the worthless tokens.

To prevent German tourists to use non-valid coins at the location (have in mind that 10 Dutch cents and 25 cents were silver in the thirties) all hotels have put in their name and place. You cannot buy a beverage in Zandvoort with the name Victoria Den Haag and the other way around. You also cannot buy a beverage with tokens without a name. Simple, and it prevented personnel to steal money from the tourists.

In 1939 this system collapses, because there were not much tourists coming to Holland anymore, due to the political changes caused by Germans. In 1940 Holland became occupied during the Blitzkrieg, and tons of tokens were taken by German occupation forces and used as base materials for bullets and other ammunition.
