KÖNIGSWINTER 1921 Rare CONFISCATED Note! "They should not have it" German Notgeld

$ 49.95

This is the very rare note that was confiscated by French occupation forces in the Rhineland and destroyed except for a very few notes. It was replaced by the "Flamme empor!" note ("Flames arise!"), which evokes the burning of the note. I've translated the offending language for your enjoyment:

They should not have it, the free German Rhine, whether they scream hoarsely for it like greedy ravens, so long as it still wears its green clothes, peacefully flowing, so long as a rudder beats resounding in its waves.

They should not have it, the free German Rhine, until its flood buries the last man's bone. They should not have it, until its flood buries the last man's bone.
