Mark gleich Mark

Mark gleich Mark

A German phrase meaning "a mark is a mark." It was a catchphrase during and after World War I indicating public confidence in the German mark. It also referred to a German cultural preference for cash, under the belief that the Reichsbank would always redeem it. Following the hyperinflation of the early Weimar Republic, the phrase ceased to be believed.
