German Inflationary Notgeld Banknotes.

After World War I, Germany suffered a period of hyper-inflation and the Reichsmark practically became worthless.

So, the government issued notgeld (or "emergency money") notes, sometimes with extremely large denominations like 100,000,000,000,000 marks. (That's 100 trillion marks!).

My dad had a bunch of these kind of notes in his little collection of monies. All kinds of crazy denominations and colors. Had fun as kids buying stuff off each other for billions of marks. Kind of cool looking, and kind of smelled funny too. The bills, not the kids.
