rotating bill of exchange


Explanation:
I cannot find major support for this, even in Zahn. But I seem to remember something in the following direction.
Sulawechsel -> Summenlaufwechsel
i.e. a bill of exchange with a top limit that keeps on rotating. That is, whenever a part of the bill is redeemed, a new credit is extended for the amount of the repayment.

If you look on the Google for the above the terms, you'll find some sites that tend in the direction of what I have indicated.
