GM-450, German Inflation Currency Groupings.

This item is listed for historical interest only. It is not for sale.
Item #11417

At the end of WWI, the German economy was in trouble. The nation was on the brink of revolution with Communists and anti Communists struggling to fill the vacuum created by the Kaiser�s abdication. With demands for the Germans to pay heavy war reparations to the Allies, the stage was set for hyperinflation. Prices began to increase and were soon doubling every two days. The mark, valued at 4 per dollar in 1914 reached its highest rate in December 1923 with 4.2 trillion marks equaling one US dollar! Currency was of such low value that it was only printed on one side and was often overstamped with a new value. Although the Weimar Government brought the problem under control in 1924, the Nazi party used the fear of returning hyperinflation as one of its arguments to come to power. Set will include at least: One 500 Mark note One 1,000,000 Mark note One 10,000,000 Mark note And One 100,000,000 Mark note Plus one additional note of our choosing.
