I quickly found this note, which is a good example. It has the word 'Wechselchein' on it - 'exchange note' or 'bill of exchange'......and more importantly 'zur Aushilfe'.......'for temporary help' (to the problem with a shortage of loose change):
Excellent!

And a belated Happy Birthday.

Have a look at this note. I just purchased it especially so I could show you all! Its a great note for anyone's collection.
A 'Darlehenkassenschein' is a 'Loan Receipt'.....another of these descriptive terms for these emergency money issues. It also has 'Notgeld waehrend der Geldnot' - 'Emergency money while there is a Money emergency' - its great - you never get bored with the notgeld issues!! Have you noticed, it doesn't have a serial number.....very strange! The reverse is blank. The note was issued by the Hauzenberg (branch of the) Loan Funds Association.




I'm starting to compile an article on my notgeld.com website, that will list all the different descriptive terms they used for the money issues........'Gutschein' (voucher), 'Kleinscheck' (low denomination cheque), notgeld (emergency money) and 'Darlehenskassenschein' (loan receipt) etc etc......I think we also had 'Wechselschein' earlier.......exchange note or bill of exchange. They all mean the same sort of thing really........ie) Here is a piece of paper that has a legitimate value to it.

Certainly is an interesting history on just the verbiage used, not to mention the actual notes.

Oh yes! As soon as collectors find notgeld and understand the basics, they can soon start collecting in earnest and building up what should be a great and very interesting collection. One can start by collecting a piece or set from different places. Everytime you spot a town or city you don't have, you add it in. Most collectors like the colourful series pieces. 2 catalogues and away you go. You can then broaden the collection by adding pieces that you find are interesting or have a story to tell. I just bought a note because I liked the look of it. I will scan it and add it to my notgeld.com website and hopefully be able to do a bit of research about the graphic so that all collectors become more interested. These articles or posts that I keep adding and now building up into a wealth of notgeld knowledge which I hope really helps the collectors out there. Most of these graphics haven't been studied so there are lots of fascinating stories to be told still.
The best thing anyone can do, if they have a real interest in these notgeld, is to join my German Notgeld Collectors Club so they can chat to me on a 1-1 basis and get access to all the wonderful info on my site. They also receive a scarce notgeld piece that is worth more than the one-off joining fee......so they are quids in , as we would say here. I managed a long time a go to purchase a large stock of a a very good piece and thought this was a good way to make sure they went to good collectors!

@scopru - indeed. These are typical 'serienscheine' - pieces issued in a nice colourful set or series for the notgeld collector market of 1921.

Way back on page 2 or 3 you posted 5 notes from Fulda. Can you repost here and give a little history on them and the area they are from?

Here are the Fulda pieces again:



They make for a lovely set of 5 different pieces, all with local scenes and buildings. On the front is the Bonifatius (Boniface) monument. From wikipedia : Winfrid Boniface was a leading figure in the Anglo-Saxon mission to the Germanic parts of the Frankish Empire during the 8th century.
