Need help identifying Banknote

Post by Neil J Fole » Wed, 19 Jan 2000 04:00:00



I have a banknote dated 1909 that is possibly from Russia.  I am uncertain
of the country because I cannot read the writing however it appears to
cyrillic.  The note is taller than it is wide.  It  has no pictures of a
reigning monarch to help identify it but it has royal designs on it; crowns,
fur robes, swords, royal crest etc. The note is has a denomination of five
and the serial numbers 927058 and is printed using pre***ly blue and
red ink.  I can't seem to find it in any library books. Can anyone help me
identify this?  Or recommend a book that might identify it?

Thanks,
Neil

        Some Russian notes look like this. Russia in Cyrillic looks like
POCC[backwards N][backwards R] Russian is POCC[2 backwards N]. Ruble is
PY6[lambda]b Rubles is PY6[lambda][backwards R] or
PY6[lambda]E[backwards N]. Bank is 6ANK. Hopes that helps, best I can do
in the Latin (with a little help from Greek) alphabet.
