World Banknotes Reichsschulwaltung REICHSKASSENSCHEIN 5 Mark Pick 1 (Ros. 1) dated 11th July 1874 Series IX. Lit. J Fol. 161 number 0801784, Fair to Good with a 4mm oblong centre hole and numerous other small holes in the main body of the note and an Exceptionally Rare early first series of the notes. Dark blue and grey-blue featuring small cherubs and the Reich Sadler (Imperial Eagle) Coat of Arms this series was issued just 3 years after the unification of various German states into the German Empire. Currency in the already economically powerful regions were dominated by state issued coins and notes mainly of (North German Confederation) and . Even after unification, there was no large demand to unify the currency under a single issuer, as there was a set exchange rate between the coins of each currency. Each state also continued to issue their own currency, thus both supply and demand for this early series was small. It was not until a few series later, after the majority of these notes were already redeemed, when a unified currency became the most popular type in Germany. These issues red in circulation until 30th June 1885. The Population currently holds only 6 examples of this scarce small denomination note although it would be roughly a worker's daily wage as at time it would average between 1.50 and 6 marks.

World Banknotes Y.M.C.A. (Young Men's Christian Association) Herford & Bad Salzuflen canteen 1/6 Mark Token Voucher (Lothar-Weiß SU.9) for the English speaking Soldiers and Army in the area of Herford and Bad Salzuflen, after the end of World War II circa 1945 onwards. Printed in black on light red thin cardboard and uniface, featuring the Y.M.C.A. triangle logo at upper centre which was a well recognized and common sight during the war. Almost as soon as the war broke out Y.M.C.A. developed mobile canteens to bring refreshments to the troops. These second-hand vans painted camouflage green were first used in East London and by the end of 1940 there 500 vans in operation bringing refreshments to the troops, rescue workers and victims of bomb raids. At the retreat of , Y.M.C.A. red on the beaches until ordered to leave. The vans followed advancing and withdrawing armies not only serving mugs of tea but also selling cigarettes, chocolate, cake, hair cream, toothpaste and stationery. They also provided food and drink to those made homeless and hungry. They also had cinema vans and mobile libraries. The first YMCA mobile canteen landed on the Normandy beaches on 29th July 1944. Internationally, the World Alliance of YMCAs expanded its work with prisoners of war and refugees: more than 250 secretaries visited camps in 38 countries. The Y.M.C.A. was given ‘official establishment status’ – essentially given permission to operate with troops in all areas and particularly in front line positions which was very dangerous in these circumstances where the canteens became under attack and the men being wounded or captured.

World Banknotes Government Administration 1 Pound dated 2nd December 1914, serial number in red 008547, P1, 25 VERY FINE. An extremely rare piece, black on green underprint with arms at left on obverse. This is the first ever 1 Pound note issued in Bermuda and the only one to be printed by the n Banknote Company, Ottawa as the following later denominations were printed by British printers, mostly Waterlow & Sons and & Wilkinson & Co. In 1882, the local 'legal tender act' demonetized the gold doubloon, which had in effect been the real standard in Bermuda, and this left pounds, s, and pence as the sole legal tender. The British pound sterling then red the official currency of Bermuda until 1970. In 1920, 5 shilling notes were introduced, followed by 10 shillings in 1927 and in 1941. The 5 shilling note ceased production in 1957, with 10 pound notes introduced in 1964. It was finally decided to take the action that British had already done 85 years earlier. In line with the international trend towards decization, Bermuda introduced a new currency in the form of a that was fixed at an equal value to the US dollar. The new Bermuda dollars operated in conjunction with decimal fractional coinage, hence ending the pounds, shillings, and pence system in that colony in the year before it was ended in the United Kingdom itself. The decision to finally align with the US dollar was at least in part influenced by the devaluation of sterling in 1967 and Bermuda's increasing tendency to keep its reserves in US dollars. Although Bermuda changed to a U.S. based currency and changed the bulk of its reserves from sterling to U.S. dollars in 1970, it still nevertheless remained a member of the sterling area since at that time, the pound sterling and the US dollar had a fixed exchange rate of £1 = $2.40. The design makes it a bit of an outlier as it does not feature any royal portraits.

Gossamer red in North and on June 24 1942 was sunk by a direct bomb during an air attack.
