St. Anselm, Fr. Wolter, & eine Rentenmark

From the library of medieval scholar, Fr. Allen B. Wolter, O.F.M., with his signature...

And found in the book (by a nice fellow who was browsing) was an old, German Rentenmark, the currency issued to stop the hyperinflation of 1922-23. The currency was printed and minted from 1923 to 1937. This note dates from 1937; the stamp is dated 1948 (which is the last year during which this currency was valid).

And here's the verso of the note, along with a leaf that was also in the book. Presumably the leaf was placed there by Fr. Wolter. So it's a relic! The Holy Leaf of Wolter!
