Imperial Germany 5 Mark 1917

Hello again everyone, today we will be profiling the Imperial German 5 mark note of 1917.  What makes this note particularly interesting is that there are two versions of it, one with a "long" serial number and one with a "short" one.  The short serial note contains seven digits, while the long version contains eight.  Of the two, the short serial is slightly more valuable but still affordable even in uncirculated condition.  The front of the note is shown below and depicts a young woman on the right side and the imperial eagle on the left.  The coloring of the note is largely purple with blue and black accents. 

The back of the note is shown below and is largely green with black lettering.  This particular example is of the long serial type and is in about uncirculated condition. 

Thanks again for reading and as always please feel free to share any questions or comments!
