These are typical 'serienscheine' : a nice colourful and interesting looking set with superb graphics.They are all 50pf face value notes, so primarily created as a nice looking collectable and desirable set and issued to meet the demand made by the notgeld collectors of the early 1920's.

@Notgeldman that will certainly be something I look into, I'm still using a German copy of Mehl which is nice but quite outdated these days (and my German is less than fluent, but I get by.)

Grabowski/Mehl catalogues are ok, but they don't show all pieces and not many of the variants either. Collectors like them as they are easy to use and have the coloured pictures. Each notgeld category (there are 8 basic ones) each has its own catalogues - so the costs for all of those can start to mount up. See what types you are drawn to and let your collection grow and then maybe specialise. There are 2 volumes for the colourful sets (serienscheine) pieces - Band 1, A-K & Band 2, L-Z. My 3 books help the collector to get a much better understanding in general for notgeld and the different types of issues and some of the stories behind them ('GERMAN GEMS')........as well as covering 2 specialist areas - the Bielefeld 100m silk and linen pieces ('MATERIAL GEMS') and the anti-semitic German & Austrian issues ('TARNISHED GEMS')
Hope that helps...
The best thing you can do if you really want to understand notgeld and become passionate about collecting them is to become a member of my GNCC (German Notged Collectors' Club)! Lots and lots of benefits for every notgeld collector. Mail me from here if you need/want more details.

Another beautiful set, ths time from Altenburg:



Issued in 1921, almost all these very colourful pieces will be in 'au-unc' (almost mint) condition.

Here is a note designed by a famous notgeld artist. Who is he? - as a clue, you can see his initials in the bottom corners of the central picture:



After collecting for a while, one will quickly be able to pick out other pieces he has designed.

In that wikipedia post, look at the 'lusterweibchen' link or use this :
https://www.artfour.com/blog/heinz-...sterweibchen

Its all quite interesting what you can learn!
Schiestl's famous sculpture of Jesus is shown below (I am not one bit religious, but it is fantastic to find out things from collecting notgeld:



The 'weird' looking 'Lusterweibchen' were totally unknown and unheard of for me, before I did a little research. In the 19th century lusterweibchen chandeliers were very popular and often used in restaurants but also in civil households in Germany. I'll put up a notgeld picture next - I promise!!

Banknote collectors may often have interests in similar things like coins and stamps. Here is an interesting piece of German notgeld issued in Wurzburg:



It was issued by the 'II Bayr. A.K.' - 2nd Bayern Army Corp and this stamp catalogues an an actual piece of 'Kriegsgefangenenlager' (KGL / POW) notgeld. The world of collecting merge together.....
