    "Шахматный" Нотгельд. Германия. 1920 г. Нотгельды – деньги, выпущенные в оборот различными, главным образом немецкими муниципалитетами, а также неправительственными организациями в период с 1914 по1924гг. Дословно с нем.яз. Notgeld — чрезвычайные, вынужденные деньги. Вследствие Первой мировой войны в стране возник дефицит банкнот, были смутные времена и каждый банк немецкой земли или города выпускал свои деньги краткосрочного применения. В некоторых городах, дабы показать свою индивидуальность стали изображать местные достопримечательности, местных героев, отображать на нотгельдах некие исторические события. Нотгельдов с изображением шахматной тематики было выпущено считанные единицы. Данный нотгельд представляет собой квартблок из 4 купюр, вместе образующих целостный шахматный рисунок. Нотгельды - не только исторический памятник. Они впитали в себя многие новейшие достижения силуэтной графики и представляют большой интерес для историков силуэтного искусства. Часто магистраты поручали проектирование и изготовление эрзац-денег опытным художникам и печатникам и требовали , чтобы банкноты характеризовались сочной и яркой цветовой гаммой.
