BENNECKENSTEIN 1921 "Am I a Stone?" complete German Notgeld series

$ 9.95

These notes tell the quite humorous legend of how the town got its name. There was once an old woman who, tired from traveling with a heavy burden through the woods, crouched down to rest. A hunter came along and, thinking she was a stone on which he could rest, sat down on her. Upset, she woke up and asked him (in dialect): "Benn eck en Stein?" (Bin ich ein Stein? - "Am I a stone?"). As the hunter didn't understand her dialect, he thought that was the name of the town, and it stuck!
