DIEPHOLZ 1921 "On the Usefulness of the Pig's Tail" complete series B Notgeld

$ 12.95

I couldn't help but laugh out loud at this one. The swine never seems to want to go where one wants it to. BUT - follow the instructions here, and pull backwards on the tail, and you should be happy like the couple on the last note. Well - almost! The word for tail in German (Schwanz, or hereSchwänzlein, "little tail") is also a slang term for a certain portion of the male anatomy. It seems there might be a pun involved here, emphasized, perhaps, by the finger-extended gesture of the couple on the last note, which reads: "And that a little tail is on the pig, that is truly lucky."

Two matching serial numbers on this hilarious set.
