Please contact me if you have any of the Bielefeld 100m linen or silk pieces with coloured edges and borders. I will pay 50-75 euros (depending on border type) for any piece I don't already have, so I can add it to the reference I am writing. There must be loads out there. These pieces have never been properly catalogued before, but I am trying to change that!
Please join my German Notgeld Collector's Club (GNCC). Well worth joining if you are passionate about learning more about German notgeld!! (There are hidden pages on this website which become visible for members who logon and discounts for members etc. etc.).
You can send me up to 20 scans of your collection if you are wanting to sell and I can then give you a valuation and brief description of what you have. (One scan can be a page or 2 of the notgeld album), displaying 4 or 5 sets per page on average). For just a one-off payment of £25 (or equivalent) to me via PAYPAL, I will then study the scans you submit carefully and let you know anything that is 'uncommon', 'scarce' or 'rare' - that will usually be any piece with a catalogue price of 10 euros or more. This is ideal for people who have a collection to sell but don't know if it contains scarce pieces!!
Selling your notgeld collection? If so, please contact me as I can usually better any valuations already given to you! I am a specialised collector and not a banknote dealer.
I have been collecting for almost 40 years now and there could be nothing better than to find some scarcer pieces I have been searching for and for me to pay a fair price for that privilege! I have a 100% positive feedback record (over 1400 positive comments over several years) with eBay (My userid is www*notgeld*com if you wish to check)
My first ever notgeld reference 'The 1921 Bielefeld100m stoffgeld pieces' is now available....with 154 different notes depicted - latest update, on title page is now February 2011!! (Started in JUNE2009 and being updated as required. Once purchased, you will get the latest downloadable '.pdf' file and any subsequent updates for FREE!) This is a fantastic reference for these beautiful and colourful pieces. The following is feedback from Olav, a GNCC member:
Bielefeld 100 M Stoffgeld pieces A catalogue written by: A.J. Gibbs Murray, 2011 This book, available to members of the “German Notgeld Collectors Club”(GNCC) over the internet, is different from the two volume “German Gems” issued by the same author previously. It covers one single note, from one single town, dated one single day – July 15 1921, commemorating the founding of Bielefeld 700 years previously. The pieces in question (all with the same front motive) have the numbers 26-35 in the Grabowski catalogue (Notgeld No.9) but in this catalogue of Tony’s, we see close to one hundred varieties! The key thing is that they are made of cloth –“Stoff” in German……linen or silk in this example. Bielefeld was a textile town and the perusal of cloth was not any necessity created of need (“Not”) – but advertising the town’s key asset. If we limit ourselves to colour, text 1 or 2, linen or silk – we have about 14 varieties. The author, Tony, takes us one step further, the borders: various embroideries, colours in a number of combinations you hardly would think possible. Collecting Bielefeld notes would take you into the more expensive part of notgeld collecting. If you are not inclined towards such investments, or are just happy to own a few samples – this book gives you the opportunity to indulge in the many, many varieties that, at reasonable prices are much less than the more expensive Bielefeld stoffgeld pieces.
