Staying with the theme of witches that myth asserts inhabit the Harz, here's two more notes, both issued by Wernigerode.

Here's a favorite duo of mine, issued by Heessen (Heeßen) promoting the restorative benefits of visiting Voigt's Kur-u. Badehaus located there.









Even today Heessen has a population of not even 1,500 and appears to be a lovely little village.

Returning to the theme of supernatural denizens of the Harz, here's a note issued by Ilsenburg. On the front are broom riding witches plus some sort of horned demon. The other side depicts what I take to be the wild man and a crowned goddess.

Here's an attractive (and I'm told somewhat scarce) piece of kriegsnotgeld issued by Bielefeld, authorized just days before the armistice.

Hi @Lucky Cuss - how are you doing? Yes, this is a lovely looking note. I can tell you what it catalogues as if you want.....?

Sure. While I doubt it's really the rare high dollar item, I suppose it might qualify as an example of Kleingeldscheine. Despite its aesthetic appeal, and my uncertainty as to whether it was one of a set, I think it nevertheless stands apart from the later Serienscheine types produced specifically to satisfy collector demand. But I am open to correction on this point.

@Lucky Cuss - it catalogues as 'Geiger-046.09c' with a catalogue price of 4 (old Dm) so now that would be about 2 dollars. It is quite a common piece. It classifies as a Grossgeld 1918 issue. (Kleingeldscheine are notes under 1m in face value).
It is from a set that also has a 5m & a 10m note. They don't look particularly similar though. Hope that helps...

I don't know why (perhaps just not used to seeing that high a denomination for this genre in general), but my brain was saying "20 pfennig" when it clearly is a 20 mark note.

I paid a small multiple of that 2 dollar quote, but am still happy with the acquisition.

A set issued by the village of Ströbeck, long known for being a center for the playing of chess. I've been meaning to acquire these six notes for some time on account of their allegorical representation of world politics from the viewpoint of post-WWI Germany.

I believe the personage prominently depicted on one of the notes is supposed to be British Prime Minister David Lloyd George, who is described as "The World Chess Master".

On another note, politics is not the topic with the patchwork of fields being described as "A Chessboard of Nature".

My latest addition.
