BAMBERG 1923 "Inflation Prices Poem" 500,000 Mark Inflation Notgeld Banknote Germany

$ 5.95

I had to translate this little poem for you, it's so great:

A pound of butter, one million,
A pound of meat, already a half [a million],
Two hundred thousand Marks for a liter of beer,
Ten thousand marks, a "Weckla" [dialect for roll, i.e. Brötchen] here.
Difficult it is to come up with the daily bread,
This money has birthed inflation and poverty.
St. Henry, St. Cunigunde, always ready to help,
Protect Bamberg in this difficult time!
