Mauthausen .50 RM Type 1 (Counterfeit)
Mauthausen was located in Austria at the site of a large quarry. It was a very brutal camp requiring prisoners to carry heavy stones up 186 stairs. Scrip was issued in two types. Type 1 reads Konzentrationslager-Mauthausen on the first line and type 2 is the usual format for a Pramienschein note. There are four denominations .50, 1, 2, and 5 RM. Notes from this camp are very scarce. Unfortunately this note turned out to be a color laser reproduction. The genuine notes were printed by the letter press process.
