    I felt like a kid in a candy store tonight when I picked up the daily mail.  I got my first shipment of old German money notes in the today, the ones I won on Ebay for about $1.75.  Below is a photograph of an almost 100 year old 1000 Reichsbanknote.  It will be 100 years old on April 21st of this year.  Its in really good condition and beautifully decorated.  Even if its fake, you can't go wrong for $1.75!

    Its hard to believe but the German people, just a mere 100 years ago, probably never fathomed that their Reichsnotes would never lose value and be sold on Ebay for a fraction of its original value.
