    I found my turning point was buying a stamp stock book to keep them in and make a scan when they arrive. Easy to shuffle around and compile sets. Admittedly I am still at <1000 so still a starter!

    Thanks for the German-English dictionary. You already know that loads is written in low German and can be difficult to understand ('now wot I mean mate!). I have found that a decent print of medieval gothic lettering also helps.

    And one of the reference books. This is Volume 4.

    At least they are worth as much as used stamps...:) I have a few and like them

    They have a set for Deustche Papua New Guinea also.

    It looks 'painful' and Germany didn't accept most for too long.

    This is part of the appeal for me. I can be looking at £40 plus for a 6d that I would want and just a few £s for a bundle of these. They satisfy my desire to organise, catalogue and read up on - and obviously different to each other to the casual observer (my wife says that my 6d all look the same)! I doubt that they will ever be worth more than I paid for them but fun to collect none the less.

    The entire series (from Rinteln) is about Münchhausen stories. This scene shows how Münchhausen once caught a bear by putting lots of honey onto the drawbar. The bear would eat and eat, thus being impaled step by step, and finally M. simply had to fix the bear with a peg. :)

    The other notes from that series are encouraging rather than reproachful. I suppose that the allusion to the 14 Points on this one had something to do with the idea of self-determination that obviously did not work with regard to the territorial questions. But that is just a guess ...

    I thought that I'd post the other two in the series that chrisild kindly referred to. Thank you so much for the additional information also. The 1 Mark is the same as 10pf.

    The value of a particular Notgeld at the time of its issuing
    might be determined by comparing its issue date...
    to the exchange value of the RM on that date.

    The necessity to make change, for banks to "tote" to the penny,...
    would give a meaningful but temporary utility to a timely Notgeld issue.
    ...especially, 1917-19 (Heck, 1916 to 1921!)
    ...and 1922-23 for "Notgeld" denominated in double zeroes plus...

    You'd like the set from Itzehoe that states the prices in 1913 compared to 1921. It brings the inflation aspect home pretty quick. Here's one of them.

    Notes from Bielefeld are also known for their biting commentary.

    I have two favourite 'sets' right now - from the loads I have. Both I am really pleased with as, as ever, the notes look nicer in hand rather than scans. The first today is a series from Sonneberg featuring toys. Hope you like them as much.

    I wish to increase my collection of banknotes. Can someone guide me about site of world banknotes ? Thanks in anticipation.

    Here is another example of inflation between 1910 - 1920.

    Yes - I really need to learn how to get that on a UK Mac keyboard. I am sure there is a way....!
