WHEN STALIN COUNTERFEITED
DOLLARS

I learned from the Tageblalt that on December to, 1929, FFranz Fischer had exchanged at the Sass & Martini bank the sum of S19,000 in $100 bills. Sass & Martini had them deposited with the I)eutsche Bank, which shipped a quantity to the National City Baiik of New York. As the notes were of an oldfashioned large-size type, then no longer issued in America, they aroused some interest upon their arrival at the Federal Reserve Bank in New York. A microscopic investigation by experts discovered them to be counterfeits of a pattern already familiar to the Treasury. On December 23, New York cabled Berlin that the notes were spurious. The cable warned the German banks and authorities that the counterfeit bills were the best imitation ever discovered.
The Berlin police, under Commissioner von Liebermann, promptly swooped down on Sass & Martini, and soon exposed its artificial character. All its transactions in bogus bills, however, led to Franz Fischer, and Fischer had vanished.
Fischer's connections with Moscow were known. It was no secret to the authorities that he had been employed during 1925-7 in the automobile section of the Soviet Trade Mission in Berlin. He had at one time made a hobby of automobile racing. The police concluded that he served only as a "fence" in the affair. A high German official declared :
" The gang must have a big printing shop somewhere, with a large staff of experts, or they could never produce such perfect results in quantity. They have turned out so much that they must have relations with a big paper mill, probably through bribery of employees. Their profits must be enormous."
The theory of the Berlin police, according to the papers, was that the counterfeiting ring was operating either in Poland or the Balkans. I wondered how long
