Description

Another lovely example here on offer here of these fantastic 20 Mark bank notes from just prior to the outbreak of World War II.

The collection on sale here at Noteworthy Collectibles has many fine examples but not all are uncirculated.  This note has some small creases and the paper has seen some handling. It is therefore priced to sell in a lesser grade. Not to be discarded out of hand though as it is still without tears and has solid edges.
