    Well it says:
    Hitler Youth area Westfalen-Niederrhein - 20 youthcamp pfennig (a pfennig is a nickel)
    I guess it was some sort of 'camp-money'

    Kind Regards,

    well the concept of event, camp currency is not new some units did it in France during WW1 and the US does it now in IRAQ. Do not have this token in hand yet but see many good things in it. Hopefully others will chime in with their thoughts and knowledge
