Description: 
Front of 1 Mark polychrome German note. On the left side of the bill is an image of a city, and on the right side is a cow; the two scenes are divided by a bridge over the Memel River; the word "Deutschland" points in the direction of the city and the word "Memelland" points at the cow. Memelland was occupied by Lithuania in the "Klaipėda Revolt" of 1923, annexed by Nazi Germany in March, 1939 and immediately reintegrated into East Prussia, annexed by Soviet Union in 1946, and made a part of the Lithuanian SSR in 1948. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, it has been part of the Republic of Lithuania.
