Behelfszahlungsmittel and Verrechnungsschein

Post by tirola » Mon Jan 17, 2005 3:12 pm

Does anybody have more information about Behelfszahlungsmittel and/or Verrechnungsscheine than this link (in German) provides? ... -053a.html

And then there is the Reichskassenschein: ... -053b.html

What is the difference between all of them?

What are the countries that the first two were circulated?

Very confusing, can someone please give me further information or lead me to additional sources?

Behelfszahlungsmittel andVerrechungsschein

Greetings Tirola,
The first set of notes that you have posted are Wehrmacht payment certificates. The Behelfszahlungsmittel were printed in 1942 and used until the Verrechnungsschein were produced in 1944. The first style of note was worth 10 times its face value. The second style of note was worth only its face value. There was a one Reichspfennig note printed in 1940 and it is rather rare.(EUROPEAN PAPER MONEY SINCE 1900 by Albert Pick
:oops: Sorry about that. I am just giving you a rehash, and alot less, of what was on the site that you posted. Maybe I should have read a little more. :oops:
