Monchehof Displaced Persons Camp 50 Pfennig

Aug28&11

The Monchehof Camp was located in the US zone near Kassel Germany.  The camp held displaced Soviets and members of a Soviet Boy Scout Organization.  According to a Russian familiar with the camp, the scrip was unofficially issued to provide change.  There was a movie in the camp along with a store that sold books and magazines for the profit of the organization.  Some researchers consider the notes to be fantasies.  They were printed three ways with the front and back the same, back blank, and with a boy with dog on the back.  These notes are considered to be very scarce.
