SKU: Bamberg - 4 different great looking notes! Category:


4 different great looking notes issued in Bamberg with face values of 500,000m, 50,000,000m, 1,000,000,000m & 100,000,000,000m!!  Their pictures and sayings on their reverse sides are superb. For example, the 1 Milliarde note shows a town crier getting the people’s attention with his trumpet.  All 4 different notes are in ‘used but very good’ condition – please see scans. 1I can provide full translations of all the notes but the 1 Milliarde translation is below:

‘Hear ye, my lords, and harken : As a billion I begin my course.

The whole of France once paid five billion When back in “Seventy” its war wounds smarted.

This amount, what a bagatelle, You have it in your waistcoat pocket!

But what you can buy for it Pretty much fits into your waistcoat pocket!

We can laugh about it, but a multitude without number laments And price inflation has sounded the alarm.

That what has befallen us this might end well, My lords, we wish and hope!’
