Really a sub-set of serienscheine, Reutergeld relates to a set of notes issued by 70 towns and cities in the Mecklenberg area of Northern Germany in 1921/1922. They were produced to commemorate the life and works of Fritz Reuter, a well known German poet and author who came from the area.
He had a particularly colourful early life involving being condemned to death for high treason by the Prussian Government for belonging to a student political club, a sentence which was commuted to 30 years in prison by King Frederick William III of Prussia and then was released 7 years later when an amnesty was proclaimed following William IV ascending to the throne.
Each town issued a set of 3 notes of 10, 25 and 50pf denomination. None were designed for circulation and were issued with an expired validity date.
