GOLD - ERSATZ: 5 EURO - Schein / frühes 21.Jahrhundert


Sie bieten hier auf einen Original 5 Euro - Schein aus dem frühen 21. Jahrhundert, den ich von meiner Ur-Großmutter geerbt habe!!!

Gedruckt in der "guten alten Zeit", war er (wie alle anderen seiner Leidensgenossen) bekanntlich nur ganze 6 Jahre im Umlauf, nämlich bis zur großen Weltwirtschaftskrise von 2009.

Dieser vorausgegangen war im Jahre 2008 eine weltweite Finanzkrise, welche ein Garantie-Versprechen über mehrere hundert Milliarden Euro der Politiker aller großen Parteien nach sich zog.

Startpreis: EUR 10,00
