Germany/France Avignon Weihnacht 1921 5 Marks /50 centimes POW Notgeld

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.

Russia, South Russia 10,000 Roubles 1919 PS425 Fine

In the immediate aftermath of the Russian Revolution, there were many different issues of banknotes before a unified currency was introduced in the early 1920’s. These 10,000 rouble notes dated 1919 were issued in South Russia (PS425) Like many of the notes at the time, they are fairly crude and poorly printed affairs. We are delighted to offer this 10,000 rouble note here in Fine (F) condition.

United States of America, Silver Mercury Dime 1930s

One of our most popular American coins is the Mercury Dime, but usually we only have them from the 1940’s or War Time. We bought a large group of these 900 fine Silver coins in and they have been sorted by date. We have come up with a much smaller group of coins dated in the 1930’s, from 1930-1939. Why are they more difficult to get? Because the 1930’s was the time of the Great Depression and money was far more important and could buy a heck of a lot more in those days. The coins have a portrait of the god Mercury on one side and a fasces on the other side. All coins will be in Fine condition and dates and mint marks will be of our choice. But the more you order the more different dates and mint marks we will try and give you.
