Identifying Currency Censor Marks
The Year Our World Began - 1919 by (St.Martin’s Press, 1987), we read this:
“On the dar the terms of peace were published in Berlin, the racetrack at Karlhorst took in more than 130,000 marks in gate receipts, and the betting sheds distributed 3,500,000 marks to the winners. In Berlin the ice palaces and the Palais de Danse were spectacular and gorgeous and expensive. Flower girls pestered customers as usual at the better restaurants. There was another wave in the orgy of spending, out of fear that the government would impose confiscatory taxes to pay the heavy indemnities demanded by the Allies. Hoards of German gold fled across the frontiers into Denmark and Holland for safekeeping.”
