Why purchase this "Shot Heard Round the World" Banknote Collection?

In Europe, the phrase "Shot Heard Round the World" is associated with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, in Sarajevo on June 28, 1914. This event is recorded in history as the catalyst for one of the world's most deadly conflicts, the Great War, World War I. At the war's conclusion in 1918, the German, Austro-Hungarian, Russian, and Ottoman empires had all collapsed. This collection of banknotes represents six types of currency circulated during the war, some of which were the last to be issued by the empires of Germany and Russia.

Distinctive Banknote Collection

This spectacular set includes German Imperial banknotes in 100 mark and 1000 mark denominations, a German Kriegsgeld 50 Pfennigs note, a German Bad Kreuznach Notgeld 50 Pfennigs note, and two notes of Russian Tsarist issue with face values of 5 rubles and 10 rubles.
