Description

This one-Mark bill, stamped by the XIV Army Corps command, was used by officers imprisoned in the prison camp at Heidelberg. The currency was valid only for purchases inside of the prison camp, a plan designed to limit bribery of the guards, reduce black market trade, and prevent the financing of escape attempts.
