Morning, I recently bought a small collection of Pre-WWII and WWII banknotes and coins from a small militaria shop near to where I live. I was hoping that someone would be able to give me more information on the notes/coins, as I purchased them specifically because of the dates they were printed/minted. If someone could give me more information or even a value I will be very grateful. I have graded the notes as honestly and fairly as possible. I bought all of it for £10, and quickly bought them home and put it all into protective sleeves and cases. As I walked in he had just bought a suitcase with it all in, and that is probably why I got it for a 'tenner', as he was more interested in the uniforms and medals. The set consists of 21 notes and 4 coins, and are as followed: Banknotes Tien (10) Gulden (Princess Emma (Old Woman) Rembrandt Version) - Dated 20 June 1940 - Very Fine (One edge has a fold on it) Tien (10) Gulden (Blue Version) - Dated 4 February 1943 (Series 2) - Very Fine 2 Een (1) Gulden (Red Version - Both Dated 4 February 1943 (Series 2) - Fine/Very Fine (Light folds on one of the notes) Een (1) Gulden - Dated 1 October 1938 (Series BX) - Very Good (Paper is very thin in the middle though) 4 Funfzig Pfennig (1/2 Mark) - Dated Serie 1944 (Allied Military Authority) - Very Fine/Good (Three are in very good condition, but one is quite dirty) Eine (1) Rentenmark - Dated Serie 1944 (Allied Military Authority) - Very Fine (Nice colour and one fold along one corner) Eine (1) Rentenmark - Dated 30 January 1937 - Very Fine (Best note of the lot, brilliant colour and no folds/pin holes) Bwei (2) Rentenmark - Dated 30 January 1937 - Very Fine (One fold down the middle) (Belgian) Cinq (5) Francs - Dated 1 February 1943 - Fine - (Has a dirty mark on the top right corner) (Belgian) Dix (10) Francs - Dated 1 February 1943 - Very Fine (Has no marks or folds, but paper is a little dirty) (Belgian) Vinght (20) Francs - Dated 23 January 1943 - Good (The worst note of the lot, good colour, but has dirty marks round most of the edge, and has many folds, no tears though) (French) Deux (2) Francs - Dated Serie De 1944 - Very Good (French) Cinq (5) Francs - Dated Serie De 1944 - Good ( No rips/holes but is quite grubby) 2 (French) Cinq (5) Francs - Dated 2 June 1943 - Very Good/Fine (Both notes are a bit grubby with a minor fold down the middle) (French) Dix (10) Francs - Dated 2 February 1939 - Good (Colour is nice, but one major rip along the top border cuts a little into the design) (French) Vingt (20) Francs - Dated 28 January 1943 - Very Good (Tiny rip on top border, does not go into the design though) Coins 5 (Silver) Reichmark (with Swastika) - Dated 1938 - Great condition, no signs of cleaning/tarnish/damage 5 (Silver) Reichmark (with Eagle & 2 small Swastika) - Dated 1935 - Very Good condition, has the Potsdam Garrison Church on the back 2 (Part-Silver) Reichmark (with Swastika) - Dated 1937 - Very good condition, shows signs of circulation 10 (Iron) Stadt Duren - Dated 1918 - Brilliant condition, considering it is Iron, there is not rust/damage/tarnish
Hello all, this is my first message here, thank you for having me I came across this very interesting coin (in my opinion) that I couldn't find much about online. It is a KM251 1pengo 1941 BP, Al but it has this interesting sickle & hammer countermark on the rev. I would like to ask you for more information about these countermarks, if possible. Why were they made? By whom? Are these rare? etc. Thank you very much All best regards.
