I have a Russian 1000 ruble bill from 1917, which was in circulation
before the revolution. The state of the bill is reasonablely good, but
not free of damages. I would like to get in contact with people who can
estimate the value. Sale is considered.

 The note could be one of several, ranked from most likely to
least likely.

P-37  Dark brown with green underprinting, blue back.
      The value would be a few dollars.

P-62  Lilac-brown.  (9 month short term obligation)
      The value would be a few dollars.

P-63  Red-violet on brown and orange.  (12 month short term oblig.)
      The value would be a few dollars.

P-80B Rose and black.  200x155mm.  (5% Freedom Loans Debenture Bonds)
      a: without overprint of value.  The value would be around $15
      b: with overprint.  The value would be around $25
