They are not rare at all! They were issued during the period of hyperinflation in germany in the 1920's when money ceased to have any value. So great was the inflation that the highest values run into billions of marks. At one time it would take a wheelbarrow full of banknotes to buy a loaf of bread and workers were paid 3 times a day so they could spend their pay before prices went up again.
The stamps you illustrate are therefore 'low' values!
