North Caucasus/Russia 100 Ruble (1918)

This banknote was issued by the Vladikavkaz Railroad Company, I was really drawn by the locomotive on the front and especially by the map on the back of the note.

Very interesting note. The train is hauled by a well depicted Class L (Pacific type) express passenger locomotive, one of the most powerful engines of its time, and one of few in Russia at the time.

Thanks jbuck/DavidUK
I've picked up a few notes from Imperial Russia/Revolutionary time, over the years, as I just love some of the intricate design on them.
When I noticed this train & map one I had to bid on it, it's in pretty poor shape but I haven't seen it before, it's like a little work of art.

I bought a couple in auction and am not sure that it was the best place to buy them because of the large commisions but they had a number of notes that I was interested and I didn't get into any bidding wars dropping out early on most lots.

I did however win a couple of notes.

Having completed the set of standard English notes with each signature I am starting to throw a few misprints in since I am not sure what else to add.





I also added a white note, I am gradually trying to add each signature in these, when I started I just added a couple of examples and now I have enough that I have an eye on completing but with some of them being so expensive I know that it is unlikely I will ever have the full set...unlike the standard notes these stretch a long way back and some signatures are like hens teeth. I should be able to get the more recent ones.




I am very pleased with the condition, its like it just came of a press though there is one tiny brown dot on the lower right, listed as probably from a woodchip.

Very interesting 100 Railway Ruble "Scots." Can see the appeal with the map.

-that's a lovely white-Fiver "DavidUK." If you haven't seen these in hand/person -it's hard to appreciate their massive size (like a dinner placemat) and the intricate watermarking throughout the paper. I've tinkered a little with my scan to see if I could highlight the intricacies seen in the "thin paper version."

Excellent banknotes DavidUK & walk2dwater

Folks must have had exceptionally large sized wallets & purses back in the day, to accommodate some of these 'horse blanket' notes which were prevalent in many countries' paper money. Lovely items

Typically they would be folded in half and half again but if you consider how much money they were worth at the time they were not commonly used.

Here's a few others...






There are a lot of "operation Bernhard" forgeries around from the time of the second world war. These I have been seeking to avoid but still are of value. The higher denominations are quite valueable too so sometimes condition needs to be sacrificed in order to obtain one... I have a Peppiatt ten which is a bit scraggy around the edges.
