    Found on the web...
    Oranienburg was the first Concentration Camp to issue scrip. The camp was opened in 1933 and closed in 1935. Sachsenhausen was built near the location of the Oranienburg camp and opened in September 1936. Oranienburg scrip was issued in four denominations 5 pfennig, 10 pfennig, 50 pfennig, and 1 mark. The 50 pfennig and the 1 mark are very scarce and the designs are very symbolic, especially the 50 pfennig.

    Re: the item posted at the top of the thread...

    Is it faded black or brown..?

    Please show the reverse. If it is the same as the side shown above, then you have a trimmed variant of the known fantasy piece shown below.

    The larger border on the RH side of the item shown in #1 might be a sign that it is a modern copy, notice how the Pfg symbol has been slightly cropped.

    Also note that the post war produced pieces are actually a fantasy design, rather than a reproduction. They have the same design front and back and were produced in an incorrect black colour, rather than period produced brown with different designs on the obverse and reverse.

    An earlier post in the thread has also been deleted as the site it originates from goes against the rules of this forum as outlined here:
