Post Your Marks and/or Kreuzers

I don't really have a focus I just buy what I like and lately I noticed it's just happened to be almost only Kreuzers and Marks so I thought I'd share some. The combination of great designs, high grades and relative in-expense keeps bringing me back I guess.

1612 3K MS65

1690 3K MS66

1866 1K MS68

1854 6K MS65

1834 1K MS67 not having a trueview for this one is an OCD killer

1918 1/2 Mk MS65

1913 3 Mk MS67

1909 3 Mk MS66

So there you have it 6.5 Marks and 14 Kreuzers. Post yours please!

    The 1690 3k and the 1913 3 Mark are my favorites of the bunch. I have also been buying a lot of Marks lately.

    A few new Kreuzers have come and a few have gone here's the current lineup (and top two below are on their way to GC as we speak which I'm regretting now that I see them all together to be honest just sent them as testers for GC as I've never sold a world coin there oh well):

    1K MS68

    6K MS65

    1K MS67 (no clue why not PL it looks like a proof or special strike of some sort)

    3K MS66

    3K MS64

    2K Was PCGS 65+ Currently NGC66 just arrived today and sparked this post

    3K MS65

    1923 Germany Notgeld Rhine-Ruhr 50, 100, and 500 Million Mark
    Things were very grim in Germany. War, human atrocities, ruthless dictators, crushing defeats, and financial collapse plagued the nation. German cities issued their own coinage since the imperial coins were completely worthless. It was an emergency and replacement money was needed. That's what notgeld means: emergency money.

    This piece of notgeld from the Rhine-Ruhr region is particularly gruesome. The coin was struck at 33 mm in diameter, designed by the famous German medalist Karl Goetz. Greek god Prometheus appears on the obverse, chained to a rock with an eagle eating his liver as part of his eternal punishment by Zeus. On the reverse a child appears in an eternal flame. There are incused letter on edge: NOTGELD.

    There are three denominations of the
    Rhine-Ruhr notgeld:
    50 million mark -- brass
    100 million mark -- white metal or silvered bronze
    500 million mark -- gilded metal

    I own a full set of 3, plus an additional 2 - 500 million mark coins for a whopping 1.65 billion marks. To put it in relatable context: by late November 1923, one US Dollar was equal to 4.21 trillion marks.

    I found this one too appealing to pass up, got it in hand today and it didn't disappoint. The Germans really did a good job implementing the art deco style on their coin designs. This eagle and bridge are just fantastic. I also appreciate the coin from it's representation of this moment in history in the region. The mid and later 20's by many accounts were a bit of a boom in Germany where they made great progress in shedding the stigma and punishments levied upon them after the Great War. The hyperinflation their economy suffered was in the rear view mirror and they were admitted into the League of Nations. That's not to say they didn't still struggle but there was light at the end of the tunnel at this point. When the world wide economic disaster occurred in 1929 those times swiftly began to reverse themselves in Germany. 1930 was a bit of a bridge in time where the German people began to lose grasp of a potential renaissance and found themselves falling down into the pit of hell most couldn't have imagined. One they wouldn't crawl out of for another 80 years. The obverse design is referencing how the German people consider the Rhine river to be a German river and not a German border. A sentiment that can be debated but it sure led them to one pretty coin design.
