    The receipt ("Prämienschein") was issued to a prisoner (victim) in Dachau concentration camp.

    A number of camps within the German Reich issued very similar notes known as 'Praemienschein' or premium notes. Scrip from some camps are of the same design except for the camp name. This shows the influence of the concentration camp authority in regards to note design. Premium notes were authorized by the 'Service Regulations for the Granting of favors to inmates.' The notes were supossed to be used for cigarettes and other canteen purchases, to fund inmate savings accounts, and even pay for brothel visits. The premium note issues have 'Pramienschein' written near the top of the note; this is either preceded or followed by "Konzentrationslager" and the name of the camp. While the official authorization documents have survived the war, little other information is available concerning premium notes.
