Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser and I'd be happy to help.

This is a 1919 100,000 ruble note from the Soviet Union. This is a fairly rare note, so please give me a little time to value for you.

Take your time.

My apologies, I misread the note (my Russian is rusty).

This is a note from the South Russian government during the 1919 civil war. It was issued by the South Russian Military command.

Obverse: Arms: horseman slaying a dragon; Swords and plants; Russian Eagle arms. Reverse: Allegorical women
holding a spear and a sword; Russian Eagle arms; Crossed swords; Moscow Kremlin Spasski Tower and Saint Petersburg.
Watermark: Mosaic. Signatures: M. Bernatsky (Chief of Finance); D. Nikiforov (Chief of Credit).

The current value would be $75 - $100.

If you have additional questions about this item, I am happy to continue working with you. Just continue our discussion in the reply box.

If I have answered all your questions and helped you, please rate my answer. I am not paid by the site until you do. It does not cost you anything more to rate the answer, and I will continue to be available if you have more questions on the item. Thank you.

At the top left above our post are a series of 5 stars. I always strive for 5 star service, but please rate as you feel is appropriate. However, if you are considering a low rating, please try to give me the opportunity to improve my service to you first!

If you’d like to request me for future questions, please put " for Jennifer only" in your post. I respond to requested questions first.

Sincerely,

Jennifer

Why does the foreign exchange rate say 1,745. US dollars?

If this was a current Russian ruble, that would be the exchange rate. This is a ruble from a government that ceased to exist in 1920, so it's purely a collectible. It can't be used as actual currency, any more than you could spend bills from the United States Confederacy, or ancient coins.

Ok I get it. Thank you so much. I have other items I would like evaluated. Is there a charge on each one?

There is, unless you sign up for a membership. Then you can post additional questions for each item or two, with no additional charges.
