I recently acquired this notgeld from Allenstein (now Olsztyn, Poland) that depicted Bismarck, von Below, and von Scholtz, and I wondered if any of you knew any other examples of notgeld depicting famous historical figures? I am thinking it would make an exciting theme for a new section of my collection.

@ark, there are hundreds! I collect notgeld and have the Grabowski/ Mehl catalogues which are a must for a serious collector. You should get these. There are many themes possible among the thousands of Notgeld issued.

@oriole, I have always wanted them but its a huge series and very expensive, plus no library in my country has them. I wish they would release a digital version that was more affordable, I would buy it in a heartbeat!

@oriole, I've had a look through my collection and found that I already have the following figures covered:

Charlemagne - Grödig, 40 Heller (1920)

Maurice Wilhelm, Duke of Saxe-Merseburg - Merseburg, 10 Pfennig (1921)

St. John of Nepomuk - Schlierbach, 50 Heller (1920)

Otto I, Holy Roman Emperor - Magdeburg, 50 Pfennig (1920)

St. Peter - Trier, 50 Pfennig (1918)

Friedrich Sertürner - Neuhaus (Paderborn), 2 Mark (1921)

Louis Spohr - Braunschweig, 25 Pfennig (1921)
