We have bought a wonderful group of German bonds which are also great value!. The group comprises 6 A4 bonds which were issued in 1935. They were Treasury Bonds issued by the National Debt Office and with interest payable at 4 ½% per year. They have also been cancelled with a small punched hole at the bottom. Denominations in this set are the 100, 500, 1,000, 5,000, 10,000 and 20,000 reichsmark. In 1935 there were just over 12 marks to the pound so the face value when they were issued was the equivalent of £3,000.
These unusual Notgeld were issued for a camp of German Prisoners of War in Avignon France. They are dated Christmas 1921, a long time after the end of World War 1. They have a stated value of 5 marks or 50 centimes and could be redeemed after being freed. They are fairly crudely printed with vignettes of a snowy scene in the camp and a mother with her children near a Christmas Tree. The back has a poem that reads like a lament, accusing Germany, their motherland, of abandoning them. Unusual Prisoner of War Notgeld £7.85 each
