Beautiful banknotes, all! I'm especially enjoying the runs of German and Russian imperial notes. They're certainly works of art!

There are English Dragons and Chinese Dragons. This is a German Dragon on the back of this note, protecting treasure.

Because this 5 Mark banknote is so nice, here is another variant of this banknote:
Germany, 5 Mark, P-8b (Serial number 7 digits)
NB! This banknote ist quite cheap on German ebay. In unc about 10 $.

What a fabulous banknote! Would that be the dragon from Wagner's Siegfried, guarding the Rheingold?

Nah, I don't think so. The dragon is just a perfect symbol impersonating something to guard a treasure. But anyhow THIS dragon would be a perfect Fafnir in Siegfried.

@erafjel
Indeed you are right and I was wrong. I did a Google search and found this article https://www.schlossmuseum.de/sammlu...e-erzaehlen/ where it says that the dragon on the reverse indeed represents Fafner, the dragon from the Nibelungen saga.

Cool! I didn't know that, it just came to my mind when I saw that dragon guarding a pot of treasures, that it could be taken from the popular Nibelungen Ring.

@ShareBear It was one of my first more expensive notes.
I bought when I started collecting in the mid 90's.
I paid 52 DM (about 32 US$)for it, together with the 50 Centavos (with error "Fiscal di Gobeerno") which did cost 43 DM (~ 26 US$)
95 DM was a lot of money then, but the banknotes fascinated me, and I don't think that I would get them today for that price.
