'An old postcard sent from Hamburg, Germany, in 1923. It bears a large quantity of postage stamps and it would appear that one or two stamps might have been removed. At the time, Germany was suffering from rampant inflation as the result of reparations for World War One, so the values of these postage stamps are ridiculously high. This card was posted on 1st October 1923 and the cost of postage on that date was 2,000,000 Marks. By the 10th October it had reached 5,000,000 Marks and by 1st December, when the Mark was revalued, the cost was 1000,000,000,000 Marks (which then became 0.10 New Marks).'
