One of the interesting after effects of Germany's economic difficulties in the 1920s is that interesting coins and currency were produced. They even experimented with some encased postage using the traditional format of advertising on one side and the stamp on the other.
German encased postage are generally hard to find, no matter what size coin show or shop you visit! Let me refine this statement. I attended Numismata in Munich in March 2012, a huge coin show, and there were very few encased postage and many that I saw were astoundingly overpriced.
 
 
Cellophane intact and smooth.
 
BTW, for a good read, there is a relatively recent publication by Whitman, authored by Robert Leonard on "Curious Currency" that focuses on primitive money. There is a tiny section on encased postage but the book is a great read overall. I highly recommend it. Oh, and I've met Bob and he is a great guy!!
