Issued 100 years ago: 50 Pfennig "Notgeld" banknote (emergency money) of Berlin, district Tiergarten (1921).
The reverse shows the first German steamboat, the "Prinzessin Charlotte von Preußen", around 1830.
However the date 1830 is mistaken, as the "Charlotte von Preußen" was already dismantled in 1824.
