Interesting man (looked him up). Thanks for sharing "Scots."
Mimar Sinan (on the back of the note) was a genius architect who was responsible for the construction of more than 300 structures in Turkey (circa: 1490-1590).

Thanks walk2dwater, I too was wondering who the guy on the reverse of the note was.
He helped build some beautiful places, lived to almost 100 years of age, quite an age for the times.
I've visited the 'blue mosque' in Istanbul, I wonder if that was one of Sinan's designs.

Eta - it was in fact designed by one of Sinan's understudies

According to Wiki, Sinan was just as significant/famous & highly regarded as Michelangelo.

Apparently many of his students went on to contribute several Turkish masterpiece buildings, highly regarded to this day.
