In the immediate aftermath of the war the German economy was ravaged by rampant hyperinflation Attempts were made to bring the economy back from the brink. In 1933 foreign payment transactions were heavily controlled to stop capital flight. Notes were issued which were not valid as currency but were regarded more as securities. This scrip was controversial when viewed in regard to emigrating Jews. They were required to pay a heavy tax to take assets abroad and any remaining assets were converted into Konversionskasse Bonds. Theoretically these could be converted at a later date but in reality this never happened .

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.
