Token: Germany Notgeld Wachenbuchen 1920 to 1930
After World War I, government issued money was in short supply in Germany. Many towns, cities, regions, and individual merchants began to issue their own money to support commerce. Thus notgeld, emergency money, was born.
This is a piece of notgeld from the region of Wachenbuchen, near Frankfort, in Germany, probably from a merchant there Wilhelm Gerlach. This piece is somewhat hard to find, so collectors might pay a tad more than 'normal' notgeld which is still quite plentiful today.

Requester description: Looks like dots going around the inside edge of the coin ridge. Then looks like a small star under the letters near the center.
