    Hello Everyone, 01-6-2017, 10:00 PM
    I was not working today, so butterfly in my stomach all day, due to not being in the Hunting area, so i go to my local thrift shop near my home, but unsuccessful, but right after my last post today, I decided to drive in town to see if something i've being miss by the others, good for me, because i found this nice German Bank Note from WW1 area.
    I could resist to the price, this note is very fine grade, just 2 very lite fold, still crisp, corners are in beautiful condition.

    Picture 3 : show the short blue silk threads impeded to the paper to prevent counterfeit" after the American inventor J.M. Wilcox ".

    This note is huge 7.25 inch by 4.25 inch.

    Many Thanks for Viewing.

    ----Reichsbanknotes – Grand Banknotes from the German Empire 1910----

    Two of the most interesting banknotes from the era of the German Empire are the very large 100 Reichsmark and 1,000 Reichsmark banknotes.

    This magnificent engraved 1,000 Mark Reichsbanknote from Imperial Germany was issued in 1910 during the reign of Kaiser Wilhelm II. The banknote was engraved on specially ribbed hemp security paper with short blue silk threads and was called the Wilcox Paper after the American inventor J.M. Wilcox. This patent was initially used in the United States for banknotes printed before 1877. This process was then sold by J.M. Wilcox & Co. of Philadelphia to the Reichsbank and was used in the production of this classic note. This is also the largest denomination note ever issued from the era of the National Currency (1874) to 1922 before the era of hyper-inflation.

    The obverse has floral design columns and the reverse has allegoric female figures, one holding a rudder and the other a cornucopia, representing commerce and agriculture embracing the German Coat of Arms.

    These notes continued to be printed until the end of the war, though the last issue date was April 21, 1910. At the start of the war, the serial numbers were in red and toward the end of the war the serial numbers were printed in green. Before World War I, a 1,000 mark banknote was worth about US $238 and at the end of the war it was worth about US $142.

    Another great looking banknote is the 100 Mark banknote also issued on April 21, 1910 by the German Empire. It features portraits of Mercury and Ceres - Goddess off Agriculture. The reverse features a scene of Germania - the Goddess of Germany with warships in the distance.
