A particularly well-executed set of Notgeld from the city of Ahaus, whose fortunes were so intertwined with those of the Dutch Oldenkott tobacco firm, that they've adorned their Notgeld series with the emblem from the tobacco package, "De Smöker," as well as the Oldenkott family's residences on the 50 Pfennig note. The firm was widely respected for treating its workers like family, employing generations of Ahaus residents.
