|Generally, “notgeld” is money issued during a time of economic or political crisis, often by an institution without official sanction from the government, at a time when money is not readily available from the government central bank. Most commonly, notgeld were issued in Germany from World War I through the period of hyperinflation in the early 1920s. Notgeld was often in the form of paper money, but was also issued in coins of various compositions. The notgeld piece offered here is a 1923 Westphalia Germany 10000 Mark gilt coin which has been graded MS65 by PCGS. The coin has been cataloged as Jaeger-N20b and the reference has been noted on the PCGS label. For the type, this is an amazing high-grade specimen with wonderful gold color and spectacular eye appeal. The piece is bright and lustrous and exhibits deeply mirrored prooflike fields and frosty devices. There are no significant hits, marks or spotting of note.. An overall awesome looking gem notgeld piece.
Because of the difficulty in capturing the overall look of the coin
in a single image, I have also included a short high-definition video of
the coin towards the bottom of this listing in an attempt to give you a
better idea of what this coin will look like in hand. Please note that
you may need to adjust the video quality to 1080p and may need to
increase the size of the video to full screen in order to see the coin
in maximum detail.
