Russian Paper Money | Imperial period | 1898-1899 serie


This emission is interesting mainly by the 1 ruble note. It was printed identically for almost 20 years, with the same year on the note: 1898. There were five series. The first four differ by the signature: Pleske up till 1903, Timashev until 1909, Konshin until 1912 and Shipov until 1917. On the notes from the fifth emission, instead of the full note number only the serie number was printed. Those were printed even after the Revolution of 1917. The 1899 50 ruble note had no watermarks, as the "orlorvsy" method of folor printing made it almost impossible to fraud.
