Issued by the local town hall authority in Bielefeld, West Germany when I was with the British Army. On my days off I would fish the rivers Weser or Danube as well as local lakes and ponds. Coarse angling was not a popular pastime in Germany but you could always get maggots from the sports shops, and I recall that the most common species were tench, roach, vendace, and ide. The licence fee was 5 Deutschmarks and another 5DM admin fee. At the time about £3 in total, for a year. Just wondering if anyone can produce an older one than this?
