UELZEN "Owl Series" original wrapper only! Notgeld German envelope cover strap

$ 29.95

This original bank strap/wrapper holds all 20 (both the 10x25Pf purple and the 10x50Pf red) of the owl series (small, thick, dimpled cardboard Notgeld) from Uelzen. The word that is spelled by each of the 10pc sets, Uhlenköper, is explained on the reverse. I've translated it as follows:

"An Uelzener resident had bought a rooster in a sack, but when opening the sack at home, instead of a rooster, found an owl in the sack. That's why still today Uelzener residents are still referred to today with the nickname [in dialect] "Uhlenköper" (High German: Eulenkäufer, i.e. Owl Purchaser)."

CONDITION: circulated, small tears, age spots on reverse
