2nd issue

The second issue was issued from 1901 to 1945, without any major change in design.

The issue was withdrawn and demonetized in 1945, after the end of the war. The German occupying power had printed large amounts of notes to finance their activities in Norway.

The notes are very similar, all notes having a portrait of President of the Storting Christie on the left, the 10, 100 and 1000 also having a portrait of  Admiral Peter Wessel Tordenskiold on the right and the 5, 50 and 500 having large numerals to the right. On the back the 5 and 10 have geometric patterns and a knot, the larger denominations historical buildings in a vignette.

Issued 1901-1944. Commoner years start at USD 16 in Good, with strictly UNC fetching about USD 200.

All notes 1914 or earlier are scarce or rare, and should be reported to the census. So are a number of year/serial letter combinatons 1916-1937, among them notably 1919 F, 1923 J, 1926 J, 1929 K and 1930 M.
