In the amount of twenty Mark, this Gutschein, or voucher, was issued by Aktiengesellschaft für Anilinfabrikation for their manufacturing facility in Berlin-Treptow. This particular company scrip is styled after a banknote with the terms of the scrip on the backside. The frontside contains an "Ungültig" cancellation stamp meaning it was no longer valid due to a purchase made within the company store or canteen. Paper features a watermark design.
Aktiengesellschaft für Anilinfabrikation, commonly known as Agfa, was manufacturing X-ray plates and photographic film products in the early twentieth century. Berlin-Treptow, Germany was the location of an aniline manufacturing plant.
This German company scrip is an example of the hyperinflation which occurred in Germany after World War One as a result of reparation costs. Due to the devaluation of the Mark, companies began issuing their own currency that employees could use within their company stores.
