Yes indeed - here is the reverse side for you to see:



It mentions 'Kohlen' (coal) and 'Brennstoffe aller art' translates as 'all kinds of fuel'.

Forgot to say.....
These pieces were usually issued by private shop keepers or businesses and will usually date from 1920. They are 'private verkehrsausgaben' notgeld types! Quite scarce and usually around the 75 euros to 100 euros starting prices, with rarer types being more expensive. I only had a couple of these types in my collection of over 20,000 different.............so yes, quite scarce and fairly hard to come-by pieces.

Almost every note has a story to tell.
I just found these 2 in my stock here:



They look the same.....but their reverse sides are slightly different because of an interesting print allign error.....

I'm guessing that the "Kriegsnotgeld" line was removed very late in the design process, and it was easier to print over it than to delete it.

Yes. I have had maybe 20 or 30 of these pieces and the design always has the 'Kriegsnotgeld' line shaded out. It only became visible because of the mis-alligned printing. The date of issue ('15 Oktober 1918') was so close to the end of the Great war.......but they weren't to know that (Kaiser Wilhelm abdicated on 9 November and Germany signed an armistice on 11 November 1918, effectively ending the war), that they couldn't redesign the note and had to 'erase' it some how. One would never have seen the words without the print error. I really do wonder though, if any of these notes were issued without the 'erasing' having been put in place.........

One other thing to tell you - the 'A.S.R.BR.' on the front of the note opposite the serial number stands for 'Arbeiter- und SoldenRat Braunschweig' (worker and board member of the Braunschweig 'Finanzkollegium' (finance college) that issued the note.
The 'A.S.R.BR' can be on the left side or the rightside, so look out for that if you are collecting.
I'll put the actual issuer in my specific issuer post, later!

I never need an excuse to look at Serienscheine & Notgeld. Spent a while going back through this thread (which I haven't seen before) so thank you for sharing!

My collection is small (less than 200 pcs.) but I enjoy it.

Here is a 'typical' colourful and interesting set of 6 from 'Altenwerder und Finkenwaerder':



Read more about them in my book 'GERMAN GEMS', that I am selling on eBay. (My 3 notgeld books are on my very top post of this article). GERMAN GEMS is the 'encyclopedia of German notgeld'. It can't possibly contain all notgeld issues but does try and explain almost everything you need to know about notgeld and what to look out for.
