English paper marks

In Mark "B," the various letters and numbers reflect the following: the large "Rd" means "registered"; the Roman numeral in the circle at the top of the mark represents the type of material from which the piece was made (see Table 1); the Arabic numeral in the top inside section of the diamond represents the day of the month; the letter at the right-hand section represents the year the piece was registered (see Table 4); the letter in the bottom segment represents the month the piece was registered (see Table 2); and the Arabic numeral at the left-hand side represents the parcel number. In other words, this mark appeared on a piece of ceramics registered on July 7, 1873.

The German papiermark was issued by Danzig from 1914 to 1923. [23] Five series were issued during World War I by the City Council (1914, 1916, 1918 first and second issue, and 1919). [24] Denominations ranged from 10 pfennig to 20 mark. [24] The Free City of Danzig municipal senate issued an additional four post-World War I series of notes (1922, 1923 First issue, 1923 Provisional issue, and 1923 Inflation issue). [25] The 1922 issue (31 October 1922) was denominated in 100, 500, and 1000 mark notes. [26] The denominations for the 1923 issue were 1000 (15 March 1923), and 10000 and 50000 mark notes (20 March 1923). [27] The 1923 provisional issue reused earlier notes with a large red stamp indicating the new (and higher) denominations of 1 million (8 August 1923) and 5 million (15 October 1923) mark. [28] The last series of Danzig mark was the 1923 inflation issue of 1 million (8 August 1923), 10 million (31 August 1923), 100 million (22 September 1923), 500 million (26 September 1923), and 5 billion mark notes (11 October 1923). [29] The Danzig mark was replaced by the Danzig gulden , first issued by the Danzig Central Finance Department on 22 October 1923. [29]
