Asian Held Bank Note

Recommended Posts

I'm really not sure on this. The clues I have found are not bringing up any results on Google searches.

Held Bank Note

What is this? It feels pretty old. Any help is much appreciated!

Your note is a type of Hell Money, also known as Spirit Money and sometimes Heaven Money.  The term Hell was adopted as a general word for the afterlife, not one in the western sense of the term. See: Link to Hell Money 

Held is a typo if you will, based on someo es limited understanding of the pronunciation.  Think of Tao Te Ching and Dao De Djing, our own typos in romanising a foreign language for the same thing.  Yours does look old, but the type of printing was done cheaply as they were desinved to be burned.
