Попала в коллекцию такая вот кайфовая банкнота периода гиперинфляции - 1 миллиард марок города Билефельд 1923 года. Графика изобилует острой политической сатирой
Банкнота 1000 марок города Билефельд, выпущенная 15 декабря 1922 года. Материал - шёлк, очень приятно держать в руках. Учитывая актуальные цены, прописанные мелким шрифтом вверху, а так же графическое содержание - выпуск этой купюры выглядел сущим издевательством)
Если даже мне что то и пригрезилось, то в этом нет никакого криминала, галюциногенных грибов я не жрал и кислотой не закидывался. Builefeld'ические нотгельды/стоффгельды вполне себе со Свастикой дружат. Смотри на аверс, в правый нижний угол:
|Bielefeld was a linen producing town in Germany, so it produc some of its notgeld issues on material such as jute, linen and silk. The piece above is made of a gold silk material and can be considered
‘rare’ with a value of over 1000 euros! There are several different types of this note and my book about them explains which ones are rare and which ones, more common. In the left-hand side picture, a Catholic priest with a long beard, (sometimes mistaken for a rabbi) chats to a man selling sausages. In the right-hand side picture, you can see the devil figure has on his left arm the word ‘Wucher’ (usury), something particularly associated with the Jews (because it was the only profession they were allowed to carry out in the Middle Ages, anda profession reserved only for Jews). Not certain that this is anti-Semitic though.
|This 500m stoffgeld piece, again issued in Bielefeld, depicts what may appear to some, to be a Jewish type figure. However, the chap on the left appears to be ‘Deutscher Michel’ (German Michael, Germany's equivalent to John Bull) - you can tell this by his nightcap, which he is always depicted as wearing (he is surrounded by texts of
biblical lamentations - Job 16:11 "God has delivered me to the ungodly" and Jeremiah 2:16 "The sons of Noph and Tahapanes have broken the crown of your head". These quotations explain his sidelong glance at the figure on the right, who is clearly Woodrow Wilson in the guise of everyone's favourite top-hatted capitalist, Uncle Sam, around whom we have the words "Wilson's Suggestion for Peace" accompanied by the bible verses from the prophet Habakuk, 2:16 "You will be filled with shame instead of glory" and 3 :16 (which makes sense in the light of the Versailles treaty):
decay crept into my bone, and my legs trembled. Yet will I wait
patiently for the day of calamity to come on the nation invading us”
Biblical anti-American sentiment indeed!
Uncle Sam / Wilson appears to have a chicken on his shoulder
instead of an American eagle. The figure of the bare-breasted lady in
the middle seems to be a made-up personification / goddess Boerse,
goddess of the Stock Market (Boerse in German); she carries away in
a great bowl the sacrifices of sacks of money while the crowds call
out pitifully to her: "Dich lieben wir Boerse / Vielmehr als die Verse"
(We love you, o goddess of the stock market, much more than we
love these verses: - being the biblical and other verses with which
the Bielefeld notes are typically decorated).
These 500m types were issued in sets of 3, with different verses on
their reverses. They were made in silk and/or linen, so a collector has
at least 6 pieces to collect. Add to that the purple(usually!) stamp
mark that may or may not be present, then the number of variants,
one can collect, rises. Fairly readily available still, these pieces sell for
around the 40-50 euros each price.
These material pieces are absolutely enthralling historical and
cultural artefacts. Highly collectable and highly collected! (My
notgeld publication showing the 100m stoffgeld pieces, with the
different edges and borders, now has over 180 different pieces!)
