The German parody is of the 100 dinara National Bank of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia note of 1929, worth "100 ljudi" ("100 people"), bears a safe conduct messages in Cyrillic declaring "Refugee Identity Paper. Warranting freedom, life, and bread for 100 people. This banknote brings you freedom and saves your life. Come over to us before it is too late. Save your life while there is still time. Do away with your commissars and come." (A Commissar is a Communist Party political officer attached to a Partisan military unit.) Both sides of the parody are printed in purple, whereas the genuine note is in pale multicolor with a yellow underprint and has a watermark. The banknote is dated 26 January 1944, the date of a German amnesty for Partisans who would surrender to the Germans. The Nazi eagle and swastika appear printed in the watermark area at right on the front. On the back in the watermark area are instructions in German for German soldiers. At lower right on the back is a small "PSK-NS", which identifies the producer as the Propaganda Abteilung Sudost Staffel Kroatien, Nebenstelle (Subsidiary Office) Sarajevo. The PSK was headquartered in Belgrade, and had branch detachments in Sarajevo, Banja Luka, Dubrovnik, and elsewhere. These safe conduct passes were air-dropped in occupied Yugoslavia, mainly in Croatia and Slovenia where the Partisan movement was strongest, and more rarely in Macedonia and Bosnia & Herzegovina. None was found in Serbia or Montenegro.
It is not a good imitation of the original. The parody has been printed in violet and, whereas the genuine note is predominately violet, it is also printed with yellow and black inks. We have seen several variations of this parody. One variety is cleanly printed, and the shading lines are in general delicately drawn and lightly inked to conform to the style of the genuine note. This parody exists in two sub-varieties, differing in the distance between the signature and the small tower on the front. Another variety is more heavily inked, with some of the shading of the genuine note transformed into solid patches of ink. We therefore list three varieties; lightly inked, with signature 2 mm from tower, lightly inked, with signature 5 mm from tower, and heavily inked.
The German $10 gold note for Yugoslavia. The propaganda banknote is a safe conduct pass in the form of the United States $10 Gold Certificate of 1928. The serial number is A55838131A. In small print on the face of the front of the note we find the following text at top, bottom and left side over the gold seal:
True, this bill is not worth anything, but it is capable of saving your life. It makes it possible for you to go over to the German forces in safety. We call upon you to leave the partisans and come over to the German forces. With this pass in your hands you are exempt from all punishment.
The Germans placed a safe conduct message on the back of the note:
Deserter Pass. Don't shoot, take this man to the nearest German Command Post and treat him well.

The illustrated 5 franc note appears to be a local winter relief note of the type issued in Germany and under German occupation in The Netherlands and Poland. However the text is not clear on this point and no additional information is avaiable. This piece could also be scrip for a local union or other work group.
