    Hey, boys, I'd appreciate some help with this. I am looking for a catalogue specializing in German paper money, I have the catalogue "Die deutschen Banknoten ab 1871" but it does not cover the German states. Other than the Krause?

    Thanks!

    I spent a little time researching in German. I found that there is a PiRi catalog that the companies auctioning German states notes referenced. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find the catalog itself. @chrisild könntest du uns helfen?

    What time period are you looking for? Pre-1871 or post 1871?

    Sorry, I'm busy these days. ;) But at least I know what PiRi is short for. That is, or rather was, a paper money catalog ("Papiergeld Spezialkatalog") by Albert Pick and Jens-Uwe Rixen. Here is an Amazon listing: https://www.amazon.de/Papiergeld-Spezialkatalog-Deutschland-Albert-Pick/dp/3924861277 I don't think the publishing house (Gietl-Battenberg) still has it ...

    Now I do not collect paper money, but as far as I know, the German states did not issue paper money once the Deutsches Reich was founded. (Apart from notgeld issues, that is.) But I could be wrong. :)

    Ok guys, to be more specific, a few days ago I received as a gift a group of German banknotes from different states, the catalogue I have, "die deutschen banknoten ab 1871" by Holger Rosenberg, does not cover them. I read that Grabowski's catalog might. Could anyone please give me some help on this? Or recommend another catalogue? The specialized edition of the Krause I find it a little weak in information. I'd like to get a little more familiar with this, and maybe start a collection of German banknotes.

    Thanks for the help!

    The banknotes that i have are these, and others from Saxony too

    Thank you, Christian. If it's the right one, I'll try to get it.

    Duh. My previous reply shows how much, or rather little, I know about those older banknotes. ;) This is the current (2017) edition of the Rosenberg catalog https://www.battenberg-gietl.de/Sammeln/Buecher/Buchdetails?name=die-deutschen-banknoten-ab-1871 - and yes, apparently it does not list the state issues (which do exist). In the first years of the Deutsches Reich (monarchy and Weimar Republic, I think) some states still had their own paper money ...

    Whether the "PiRi" has them, I don't know. Here are a couple from Bavaria:

    Well, finally the catalogue recommended by @chrisild, "Papiergeld Spezialkatalog" seems to be the correct one. I've seen some pages of this one, and these banknotes are documented. I found one from a seller on eBay in Germany, so it's on its way now.

    Thanks for the help!
