The entire range of Notgeld from circa 1922 is attractive and compelling. As a general rule, I find that the Austrian issues tend to be more artistic than the German. Not that the German notes are generally deficient in any way, but that the Austrian issues seem perceptibly better.

 

That would include factors or parameters from balance and color to harmony of theme or depth of presentation, or integration of imagary, typographic elements and leitmotif. Words poorly transduce the experience, perhaps.

It's hard to get a good scan this note bleeds through on both sides.

Or Gutschein as we say in German. :ninja:

Actually that just means "voucher" - the place name is Steyr ...

Thanks -- that's probably why I couldn't find it on any of the websites.

Another case of disappearing images. Maybe I can move them to banknotebank and that will help. I'm off to look for some originals.
