Webpage (with great photos) published by The Guardian in conjunction with a current exhibition of notgeld at the British Museum in London:

https://www.theguardian.com/artandd...-in-pictures

With regard to the first note shown, it's cited as being from the Harz mountains and depicts witches. It's quite similar in style to my quartet of Bad Harzburg notes posted above, and in fact was drawn by the very same artist. This artist's work appears yet again in the sixth note pictured.

Also, here's an article focused on the aesthetic aspects of notgeld serienscheine:

Going back to my quartet of Bad Harzburg notes posted on the previous page, I've identified the artist as Franz Jüttner (1865-1925).

Moving on, if you'd like to just browse through notgeld images, here's a cool website with 67 pages of them:

Here's another series of notgeld notes from 1920 illustrated by Franz Jüttner.







Jüttner was a very prolific artist. Here're a couple more examples of his work, these not appearing on notgeld per se, but of a style that certainly would've been appropriate for that purpose. The first is one in a "Snow White" series. the other a piece of First World War propaganda.

Ah yes - the set of 3 from Lutter! I'll add them to my article list. On my homepage I am asking a question so we might get lucky and get some replies for more different examples..........

Just bought this pair of notes featuring more of Franz Jüttner's artwork. They'll be coming to me all the way from Israel....

Those last 2 are from a set of 4. The town of issue (Schierke) doesn't actually appear on the notes, but you should list them under that.....not 'Brocken'. You'll find them in the catalogue under Schierke. Straight away you can see the artist from the graphics - brill.

I thought I'd add one of my favorites here. This 25 pfennig note originated with the municipality of Stützerbach in Thuringia. It's diminutive at 58 x 80 mm but really rather nicely done, including a tiny embossing of a conifer (which also appears as an element of Stützerbach's coat of arms).





It's a testament to the chaotic ubiquity of notgeld in the early 1920's that such a small, out of the way place participated in its issuance (even today, the population of Stützerbach is under 1,500).

Apparently Stützerbach has long been a "health resort" destination. It looks to be a lovely little community in a rustic setting.
