    Re: 10 Dm

    There was a discussion several years ago (March 2007) on
    this list, about the "strange sextant" shown in this banknote
    (look carefully at the index mirror:-)
    If I remember correctly, the discussion was caled "Old sextant on German
    money".
    Frank's message of 9 Mar 2007 has photos of it.
    It is called vizeheiotrop, and is apparently a modified Troughton and
    Simms Sextant.
    
    Here is a very funny web site where you can buy these 10 DM notes,
    and many other useful things:
