1908 German 100 Marks

The two green seals of the "Reichsbankdirektorium" set off a nice contrast against the light blue background.


The heavy cursive embellishment on the first letter of each word is very eye-catching as well. The typography alone makes this banknote special.

The other side of the note is equally interesting, with three women depicted on a blue background. The engraving of the hair is very detailed and the overall picture is impressive.

On the left side of the note at the bottom is a warrior's helmet and a hammer, and on the right side is an ear of corn, grapes, and other fruit.
