    Here is a fine example of the SS marked premium tokens that were used in the concentration camp at Buchenwald, Weimar.

    These tokens were issued to collaborating prisoners, such as Kapos, as reward for their work. Later, they could redeem the tokens for food in the Kantine, or for "services" in the camp brothel.

    Good example. I have one shown on the forum here:

    Thanks Ade. Yes, I noticed your example a while back. The original examples that I have found, including this one, all appear to be made of poor quality paper and are quite brittle. The old paper tape on the reverse of my example was applied long before I acquired it, but just shows how fragile they are.

    Regards,

    An issued 2RM example. This is the same pre-Aussenkommando marked format as the one shown earlier, although a "slanted leg" (referring to the legs of the letter "M") variant in this case. Note the very low serial number.

    Another circulated example, this time a .50RM "straight leg" variant. Note the even background pattern - not present on reproduction pieces.
