Money of the Weimar Republic

Bundert 100 mark 1920

The Weimar Republic in Germany lasted for a relatively short time – from 1919 to 1933, its place in history-between the Kaiser's Germany and the coming to power of Adolf Hitler.

In contrast to the pre-war 'gold stamp', the paper money of the Weimar Republic is usually called 'papier mark' – a paper stamp-with the hint that there can be no question of any gold content in this case.

The 100-stamp bill, issued in 1920, is decorated with a double symmetrical image of the head of the Bamberg Horseman, a legendary sculpture from the Cathedral of St. Peter and St. George in Bamberg, Bavaria.

The sculpture is famous not only for its antiquity and beauty – a knight sitting on a horse, crowned with a crown, was erected before the lighting of the cathedral in 1237 in honor of the monarch, about whose identity historians are still guessing.

The role of the knight-king's nominate and killed in Bamberg Germany king Philip of Swabia, and the first king of Hungary, Stephen I Saint who introduced Christianity and the Roman Emperor Constantine I the Great, the founder of the Eastern Roman Empire.
Under the images of the Bamberg Horseman - two red seals of the Reichsbank (Reichsbankdirektorium), between the seals-the signatures of 9 members of the bank's management, namely:
  • Havenstei;
  • Dr. Gallenkamp;
  • Kaufmann;
  • Schneider;
  • Budczies;
  • Bernhard,
  • Seiffert;;
  • Vocke;
  • Fridrich.
The Bona has a 2-letter numbering.
The first letter is printed on the background grid above the word 'reichsbanknote” (so-called Unterdruck – Buchstabe) - on this bill it is the letter 'Q'.
The second letter is printed after the serial number 1474890 in red - on this bill it is the letter 'T'.
The 162 mm X 108 mm bill is made of paper with watermarks: on the front side - on the right and on the left - the vertical text is visible in large letters - 'M *100* M': on the left the inscription is dark, on the right – light.
On the back of the bill, protective fibers of brown color are visible.
The Bamberg horseman and the watermarks clearly enliven the bill. And the simplicity of the design, not burdened with allegorical compositions,” bundert 100 mark 1920 ' resembles not so much the Kaiser's banknotes, but the local banknotes that have already appeared in the cities of Germany - notgelds.
