I learned about this new book on German notgeld from the February 26, 2019 issue of News & Notes edited by Loren Gatch for the Society of Paper
Money Collectors. Here's a Google translation from the publisher's web page. -Editor

With the outbreak of the First World War, cash was scarce throughout Germany. Cities and municipalities, districts and banks, even manors and clubs gave out
in the episode own money. The author took up the subject and united in the present publication all paper money issues of the former districts Liebenwerda,
Schweinitz and Torgau and the region around Finsterwalde.
From 1 penny to 500 billion marks, with over 500 illustrations illustrated, you will experience one of the most exciting chapters in the history of regional
Lately, publications on regional emergency money in Germany have been increasing again, making an important contribution to German monetary history in the
period from the First World War to inflation to the period after the Second World War. The author has understood well how to document the regional Brandenburg
and Saxon emergency money issues of the Elbe-Elster region, classify them in the historical context and supplement them with excerpts from contemporary
newspapers and other documents.
Introducing the various emergency money epochs. Why here, as well as in the appendix to the used and further literature, only on the widespread catalogs of
the series "German emergency money" is received, if this is not otherwise, but otherwise cited catalogs that have appeared only in small editions,
remains the secret of the author. A rogue who thinks evil.
Otherwise, the book, which is arranged in the course of the former circles of the Elbe Elster region, I really liked and I can recommend it to any
interested collector and regional history interested in this region.
It is also very nice that in the end, the participating printers and artists will be addressed.
The price of 20 euros is really very moderate for the book issued by the Herzberger Münzfreunde eV.
