My New Website


Rhino

Recommended Posts

As promised, here's the link to my new Russian Banknotes site:

 

Russian-Money.blogspot.com

 

It's a website dedicated to Russian banknotes from the period 1898 to 1991. Once it's totally finished, it will cover the Imperial period, the Provisional Government notes, and the Soviet banknotes up to 1991.

 

I just finished posting the Imperial section, and I will update regularly to have Provisional and Soviet notes as well so stay tuned. Lots of high quality images up. Comments and suggestions always welcomed!

I like the detail you have about the notes, the 100 and 500 are said to be large in size how large are we talking?

 

The 100 ruble is 10 inches (25.4 cm) by 4.75 inches (12 cm), and the 500 rubles is 10.75 inches (27.3 cm) by 5 inches (12.7 cm)... must have been hard getting THAT into a wallet :ninja:

They are big notes even compared to some German inflation notes from the 20's

Unfortunately, I have not :ninja: I only got to see photos of them at auctions, where they easily fetch anywhere between $800 and $3000 from the ones I've seen. WAY out of my reach...

Here's an example of a note I'd love to have, but cannot afford. It's a 1890 10 Ruble note that's on ebay right now:

 

http://cgi.ebay.com/Russia-Beautiful-1890-...=item2c534c3d67

 

Current bid is at $2850. Wow. Beautiful note, but only a very select group of collectors can afford something like that.

 

It is true, the problem with the Old Russian banknotes is that they are a bit expensive and they sometimes turn out to be either modern forgeries or contemporary forgeries. I think there are more contemporary forgeries out there than modern ones.

VERY nice website Rhino!

 

I have two early Russian banknotes circa 1900 or thereabouts, if I find the time I'll scan them and post them here.

If you can use the scans please be my guest.

So at the end of the day it becomes too difficult to get any notes from before 1898 :ninja: The 1 Rouble note from 1895 actually looks very much like the 1898 rouble, and has been occassionally located.

Thanks!

 

If it's a note that I don't have on my site, be my guest to post a scan! I am missing a bunch of notes from the year 1899, so if those are the notes you might have, I'd definitely like to see the scans :ninja:

Very nice - I like it!

 

Might be nice to feature a scan of all the signatures known - makes it easier to identify.

 

By the way I remember having 3 of 5 ruble notes, all with the same serial number. I'll have to take a picture one day. I'm busy packing right now ;)

 

On the "Imperial Russia" intro page, with the eagle at the top, there is actually a chart of all the signatures, you just have to scroll down. And that's cool about the serial numbers on the Roubles, post a scan as soon as you're done packing stuff :ninja: I've never seen that before, must have been difficult to find.

Your site is very nice! It is also very interesting! After Romania, Russia is the country where I most notes ...

And if you put the banknotes issued by the Red Army and Russian banknotes have something.

Even facts red army banknotes issued in Romania are the rarest? 5000 lei banknote and the Red Army Command was unknown until a few years ago...

Thanks! Right now I'm working on the Provisional Government notes (1917), and as soon as that's done I'm going to move on to the RSFSR and USSR. And that last section will be the longest and hardest :ninja: I'm sure you have seen how many hundreds of banknotes were printed between 1918 and 1991.

 

I didn't know the Soviet army issued notes for Romania, I typically only saw the Hungarian Pengo notes. I heard there were a lot of Soviet Occupation notes, but hadn't seen many. If you have more, post some photos ;)
