Austria 1923 20 kronen
"20 Kronen 1923. Wien. Gutes vorzüglich. (Austria, twenty kronen of 1923, good extremely fine.)"The type was issued briefly 1923-24. Altho it is noted as having circulated, it and the accompanying hundred kronen (KM 2831) seem more likely to have been hoarded, given the instability of the regime. It is today rare.
