Krause tells these are "civil war issues", but how can they be, since the civil war of Finland began in 1918? It's true that some of the coins were minted during the civil war, but still it isn't right. Krause also tells these are "Kerenski government issues", they're not. The design of the new coins was only announced to Petrograd Government, rather than asking them to approve it.
