These small notes are a relic of life behind the Iron Curtain. (PFX1-3) Introduced in May 1979 by the East German government, citizens were incentivised to exchange their old Deutschmarks and other foreign cash for this internal currency, so that they could purchase desirable Western consumer products in the state-run chain of stores known as Internships. We offer a set of 3 values, the 50 pfennig and the 1 and 5 marks in Crisp Uncirculated.

Blue/Pink Wartime £1 (B249) AU/Unc

During the Second World War the Bank of England was concerned that the currency could be counterfeited. To thwart counterfeiters it was decided to change the colour of the £1 note from the traditional green to blue pink Perhaps the most significant change was the introduction of an embedded security thread in the body of the note. We regard this feature as standard today but then it was considered revolutionary. The bank ditched the new colours once the war was over reverting to the traditional green. The new security feature was retained. This is a classic note which any Bank of England collection should include. It is important because it was the first note to contain an embedded metal security thread. Available in AU/Unc.
