The Banknote Book

The Banknote Book is an attempt at a complete new catalog to cover all countries. This is an ongoing work, as of June 2014, 200 chapters of The Banknote Book have been published covering 20,477 types and varieties. Some notable exceptions exist for the larger countries/authorities e.g. England, France, Scotland and Spain. Even with only a partial covering the general level of reviews is very promising.


Some key features are:


Deutsches Notgeld Band 1 and 2

Deutsche Serienscheine (German Series) banknotes are covered by this two book catalog. Series banknotes issued by many Authorities in Germany from 1918 to 1922. Series banknotes were generally non circulating. The books are written in German but can be read with an English background with only a little effort for most entries. A color image is provided for most sets and the descriptions although often short are helpful. Covering of varieties is partial and although paper and watermark varieties are listed for a lot of notes serial number varieties (other than with and without serial number) and color variations are not. For the non inflation notgeld collector Bands 1 and 2 are likely to be the most important catalogs of the series followed by Bands 5 and 6.
