Now usually when I want translate Notgeld I will use the internet and my limited grasp of German to do so and this works fine most of the time but the notes I have just bought have a very difficult to read font so it is going to be almost impossible for anyone who doesn't have a good knowledge of German to crack.
I may be getting my hopes up but if anyone can help I'd greatly appreciate it. *Sorry about the image size, this is the only one I could find.*
I imagine this new member from 2012 is unlikely to still be watching this thread for a cogent reply to his query, but it's really a good mystery that ought to be solvable. Yes the text is rendered in a bit of a scrawl, but the signature's clear enough - it's something written by Paul von Hindenburg. The problem is, generally there's less than a dozen quotes commonly attributed to him, and this'd seem to be more obscure than those. I think I see the word "leben" (]i]v.[/i] to live) repeated twice in rapid succession, and there's that emphatic exclamation point at the end, which taken together ought to render the whole identifiable if only one could readily scan more of his quotes.
