1862 German States Herzogthum Nassau 1 Kreuzer Coin

This is a 1862 German States Herzogthum Nassau 1 Kreuzer coin, please see it in the pictures below.  The German States did not unite until 1871 and prior to and even after unification they each made their own coinage.  This Kreuzer is from Herzogthem (Duchy of) Nassau.  This coin is made from copper.  At the bottom of the front you’ll notice the word Scheidemünze which coins were called in Germany (during the time period when this was made) that were made out of medal that was worth less than face value (at the time).  The image in the center appears to be a coat of arms.  The reverse has the denomination of 1 Kreuzer surrounded by a wreath.  There were 609,990 of these made in 1862.

This 1862 German States Herzogthum Nassau 1 Kreuzer Coin appears to be in Almost Uncirculated condition and very collectible with some numismatic value.

1923 Germany 10 Million Marks Zehn Millionen Mark Banknote Old Currency

Here we have a German 10 Million Marks banknote produced in the year of 1923.  This was the year that papiermark (which was the currency of the Weimer Republic was wiped out and replaced with the rentenmark (or stabilization currency).  This note has a date of  August 22, 1923 on it below which one will notice the 2 Reichsbank direktorium seals with eagles.  This banknote note is uniface which was not uncommon for paper money from Germany during this era.  This was likely done as an efficiency measure due to hyperinflation pressures on this currency.

See our 1923 10 Million Marks in the picture underneath.  It appears that this banknote saw very little circulation.

1917 Germany Lindenberg Stadt City Notgeld 50 Pfennigs

This post will be about the topic of a German notgeld (emergency money) 50 Pfennigs (denomination).  It was produced by the German city of Lindenberg im Allgäu (located in Bavaria) in the year 1917.  On its front side there appears to be a picture of a medieval soldier on both sides of which are 50 for the denomination of this money.  The back or reverse side has what appears to be a picture of an old church located in Lindenberg surrounded by a fancy frame.  Also on the bottom of the reverse side is when this money was printed: 1 August 1917.

This 1917 notgeld 50 Pfennigs looks like it is almost uncirculated in its grade.

On this post we will a highlight a 1923 Germany 10 million marks note.  This one is particular was printed by the German Railroad Authority (Deutsche Reichsbahn) at the time.  It may seem odd that such an institution would print money but at the time there were severe  inflationary pressures in Germany.  This particular note has purple and gold colors to it and has an image of winged wheel.  There is print only on one side as the back is blank (not unusual for many German issues of 1923).

Uncirculated Eine Billion German Marks Banknote Reichbahn Direktion Cassel

In this posting we will be discussing a German Eine Billion Mark (which translates into 1 Trillion Marks in English) banknote. This note was produced by the Reichsbahn Direktion Cassel, a German rail authority. It was printed on October 24, 1923 which was when Germany was reaching its peak in the hyperflation era.  Shortly after the mark’s (Papiermark) value was totally wiped out and replaced with the Rentenmark (stabilization currency).    The denomiation of this banknote is certainly not that common and could be considered scarce. This paper money has a silver colored seal on this paper money which is an interesting highlight.  This is a uniface bill with no print on the reverse.

Our Eine Billion Mark note by the Reichsbahn Direktion is in uncirculated condition.

Take a glance of our 1910 Germany 100 marks banknote in the photos below.  Its condition is very fine.

1923 German Stadt Trier 1000 Marks Banknote Overprinted with 500000M

In this posting we will explore a German 1000 Marks banknote from February 1923 that was later overprinted on as 500000 Marks in July 1923.  This shows how dire the  hyperinflation situation was in Germany at the time as the authorities there were trying to inflate themselves out of the war debt from WWI.  In the end the currency failed and was replaced by the Rentenmark in 1924.  In any case our overprinted banknote appears to have been a city issue as the top of the obverse says Stadt Trier or the city of Trier in English.  The old 1000 denomination is crossed out and there is overprint saying: Gültig Für 500000 M Fünfhunderdhausend Mark (which in English would translate as valid for 500000 Marks).  This bill is predominately in brown print with various patterns.

See our 1000 Marks banknote overprinted with 500000 M below.  It has minimal wear, is crisp and has with a couple very slights fold in one corner.  It would likely grade as a lower extra fine or higher very fine.
