Didn't the Germans print their banknotes on stamps during the world war?

 

I just can't understand why the used such small banknotes, there must be millions that were lost in the sewers :oops:

 

In times of war, coins are often in short supply. Gold and silver coins are hoarded for their intrinsic values. Other metals are appropriated for war efforts. Many governments resort to printing small denomination banknotes as temporary substitutes. The following are some of the countries which had issued postage size banknotes: Ivory Coast, Macao, Monaco, Morocco, New Caledonia, Romania, Russia, Spain and United States.

This is very cool! I like to pick up things like this! Just before the move to Euro, I saw a similar keychain for Euro notes in a hotel gift shop in Amsterdam. Unfortunately, I didn't have any cash and they didn't accept credit cards. Was very bummed.

 

Can you ask your wife where she picked this up? I will ask a friend of mine in Manila to pick one up for me!!
