Dear Adrian,

I regularly use R.L. Bidwell's Currency Conversion Tables; A Hundred Years
of Change published in London by Rex Collings Ltd. in 1970. Although the
book is now rather dated, the information allows for a quick comparison of
most European nations, Canada, the United States, Japan and selected South
America countries from the previous Turn of the Century until 1970.

At 20.429 marks to the U.S. dollar prior to 1914, your 200,000 marks would
have been worth $9,790.0044, or roughly $10,000 U.S.
back then. Any reliable inflation chart for the twentieth century would
give you that sum's current purchasing power today.

Best regards,
Dan Bowyer

Dear Mr Sudhalter,
perhaps you can ask for further information at the archives of german bank
institutes like the Deutsche Bank.(Contact via Internet).

Sincerely
Dr. Schmidt
