Hello, Thank You for this picture
from the Stoltenhoff Island!
(A part of Tristan da Cunha, a dependency of the British overseas territory of Saint Helena.)
I never heared of this island until 10 min:
There is an advertisement campaign in different small german newspapers and the Internet from coin traders for collectors: "Money from the Pirate-Island - the first edition coins from the Stoltenhoff Island, a former pirate hiding-place" (my rough translation into English). They have different sailing ships and par value (penny) on it and on the back Queen Elizabeth II, an official legal tender set, although non circulating - for a high issue price.
Stoltenhoff Island is very small (0,1km²], uninhabited and inaccessible.
How it is possible that this island was "a hideaway for Pirates" and is mentioned on a dubious currency?
not to mention from a beach volley tournament: The Stoltenhoff Open 08 with a prize money of € 100.000
maybe is this the right place to start a discussion or not? Nevertheless it is because to keep an unimportant island in mind...?:
Coins and world tournaments in the name of a penguin and bird dung island?
What will come next? ;-)
I think this is dubious...
nice greetings from Berlin, Germany
I started to recherche about the Stoltenhoff brothers, two Germans wich tried to live as the only one on Inaccessable Island between 1871-1873.
You can find it in "The Annals of Tristan da Cunha" by Prof.Faustini at page 35f.
you can make real money from bird dung (also called "Guano")
... and best regards from an stoltenhoff-descendant in hamburg, germany :-)
very beautiful picture.
Such and interesting place. Wish I could see it with my own eyes one day.
Kind regards Tim
A very beautiful picture! Like! Greetings!
