Germany Notgeld Crailsheim  1918
Germany Notgeld Crailsheim 1918

German notgeld, or emergency money, is a fascinating area of coin collecting today. These coins (really tokens) were issued because the normal governmental authorities were too busy with other intentions or incapacitated by external conditions to produce regular coinage for commerce. In 1918 Germany was a mess (kriegs = war) and notgeld abounded.

This is one of many examples of notgeld. Please read our general page on the subject at this link [Click Here].
