Description

The Austrians used this one-Krone bill, featuring a bust of Kaiser Franz Josef, in the prison camp at Freistadt. Prisoners could use this currency only for purchases inside the prison camp. Because bills could not be used outside of the facility's confines, the money would not help POW's in escape attempts.
