German Rentenmark

The Rentenmark was a currency introduced on 15 November 1923 in Weimar Germany after the value of the previous currency had been destroyed by hyperinflation.

The banknote shown at left was printed in 1937 or later. It bears an adhesive coupon attached by the East German govenrment in 1948, extending its validity while new East German mark banknotes were being printed.
