In the 'first issue' of August 1914, a 5, 20 and 50 Mark banknote was printed.
They all have "5 August 1914" as printing date.
Yet there are differences in the notes.
|KM 47 b front|
|KM 47 b front detail|
|KM 47 b back|
This note comes in 3 variations :
# 47a (5-8-14) with 6 digit serial n°
# 47b (5-8-14) with 7 digit serial n°
# 47c (5-8-14) with 8 digit serial n°
|KM 47 b serial number|
KM 47a is the most valuable, 47b and 47c have the same value.
(not yet in my collection)
|KM 49 front|
|all notes in this set bare the date 5. August 1914|
|detail of the front, watermark is visible|
# 49a (5-8-14) with 6 digit serial n°
# 49b (5-8-14) with 7 digit serial n°
|KM 49a - back side|
|KM 49a back side - detail with 'Germany' symbol of the German Empire|
|KM 49a - 6 digit in serial n°|

In used condition, both notes are equaly priced.
