Only 100 copies have been printed of this new book on the paper payment tokens of Israel. The book is in Hebrew with a brief description in German.
Here's the Google-translated text from the seller's site. Thanks to the July 23, 2019 issue of News & Notes from the society of Paper Money
Alexander Golberg: Catalog of Paper Payment Tokens in Israel
282 pages, throughout (with a few exceptions) colored illustrations, format 213 x 305 mm, weight 1.5 kg, cardboard binding (hardcover) with thread
stitching, self-published 2019,
Price about 60,00 Euro.
In his catalog, the author presents a collection area of ??notaphilia that is hardly known to us: paper payment tokens.
The catalog is written in Hebrew. This means that the book is read from "back" to "front" and from "right" to
"left". Only the information on the issuer and the year of issue has been added by the author in English. The cover and the solid paper make a solid
impression. When looking through the book, the viewer immediately notices that there is a lot of passion in him. Almost all bills are colored in original
The catalog is divided into ten sections (in brackets the number of issuing offices): Municipal expenditure (10), expenses of businesses (101), expenses of
enterprises (85), expenses of restaurants (94), expenses of security forces (14), eg , Police, Ministry of Defense, Military, Charitable Organization (34),
Medical Equipment Expenditure (8), Transport Company (18) Expenditure, Cooperative (44) Expenditure, and Cooperative Settlement (32) Expenditure around
co-operatively organized, rural settlements, in which unlike in the kibbutzim private property is allowed.
The catalog covers all related issues in the area of ??contemporary Israel from the time of the Ottoman rule to the British mandate administration in
Palestine until today.
In the expenditure no prices are called, but each note is assigned to a rarity group. RRR means that only 1 - 2 specimens of this exhibit are known, RR 3 -
5, R 6 - 10, and all others the estimated amount present.
The author summarizes the monetary concept very far, so he took z. For example, banknotes whose equivalent is a breakfast, lunch or similar or which give a
buyer a discount on the purchase of goods. It should be noted that some of the paper payment stamps are not only written in Hebrew, but also in English, French
The catalog, published in a mini edition of only 100 copies, can certainly be recommended to any interested collector of paper money.
