Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

201  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / Latvia WWI Money on: 20 July 2010, 20:30:18

This is the 1-rublis 1919 Latvia money issued by Riga's Workers Deputies' Soviet.  I just finished reading "The World on Fire:  1919 and the Battle with Bolshevism"  http://www.amazon.com/World-Fire-1919-Battle-Bolshevism/dp/0393061248 and learned a bit about the workers' soviets set up by communists in the Baltic States newly-liberated countries.  This soviet was very short-lived.  The British Navy aided the non-Communists and there were German-led troops fighting there, too.
202  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / More Japan WWII Money on: 20 July 2010, 20:24:02

The 1946 50-sen Allied Occupation banknote for Japan.  The 'A' in the underprint determines that this is from 1946.

Again, the 'A' in the uderprint tells us that this is from 1946.  (I'm still not sure why the 'B' was issued first, in 1945.)
203  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / More Hong Kong WWII Money on: 20 July 2010, 20:14:09

204  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / More Germany WWII Money on: 18 July 2010, 18:30:15

Dated 24 June, 1935, this 100-mark note would have been used during WWII.  The swastika in the middle kind of ruins (to a modern viewer) an otherwise very attractive design.  Justus von Liebig is pictured at right.

This 50-reichsmark note is a Reich's Credit Treasury Note, issued for use in German occupied territories during WWII.  It was used from 1940-45.

212  Military Hardware, Gear and Equipment / Gear and Equipment - General Discussions / Re: U.S. Military Weapons Inscribed With Secret ‘Jesus’ Bible Codes on: 17 July 2010, 21:38:15
Come on, guys!  If I saw "jn8:12" on some equipment, I certainly wouldn't think 'Oh, good, a bible verse' or 'why are you preaching to me, that's against the constitution'.  I'd think it was some technical data or some type of manufacturer's mark. (which it is, in a way . . .) and ignore it.

The quoted articles are a bit mis-leading as the verse is not spelled out, only a refernce to it in abbreviated form.  One would have to know what one was looking for in order to be offended or rejoice in the message depending on one's view.  A company in the US isn't restricted to having religious believers or atheists.  A government contract with that company can't be viewed as support for a particular religion, atheism or a political view. 
213  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / South Vietnam Vietnam War Money on: 8 July 2010, 20:06:18


National Bank of Vietnam 5- and 10-dong banknotes issued in 1955, one year after the Geneva Treaty which broke up the French IndoChina colonies.

The 1962 National Bank of Vietnam 10-dong banknote.

The 1964 20-dong issue from the same bank.

By 1966, inflation had made this 100-dong note necessary.

It's not clear to me why two different 100-dong banknotes were required, but this one also came out in 1966.


The above 2 notes were issued by the Central Committee of the National Front For the Liberation of South Vietnam.  They were meant for use in territory controlled by the National Liberation Front (the Communists) but were never issued. A large number were captured by the US and ARVN which is probably how I got them!
214  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / More US Military Payment Certificates on: 7 July 2010, 18:38:45




Series 661 was for use in Vietnam.  It was issued 21 October, 1968, and withdrawn 11 August, 1969.



Front and back of 10-cent denomination of Series 681.  I think the back design (the same on the 5-, 25- and 50-cent notes) is interesting in its choice of themes, celebrating the July, 1969, moon landing.

Series 681 was issued for use in Vietnam on 11 August, 1969, and withdrawn on 7 October, 1970.
215  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / More US Military Payment Certificates on: 6 July 2010, 20:13:59




Series 611 was valid 6 January, 1964, and withdrawn 28 April, 1969.  It was used in Cyprus, Libya, Korea and Japan.






Series 641 was issued 31 August, 1965 and withdrawn 21 October, 1968.  It was for use in Vietnam only.
216  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / More US Military Payment Certificates on: 5 July 2010, 20:39:19


more Series 541 notes.

Series 591 replaced 541 and was valid until 6 January, 1964, in the Pacific and 14 January, 1964, in Europe.
217  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / More US Military Payment Certificates on: 5 July 2010, 20:35:57

Series 521 (25 May, 1954-27 May, 1958) was used by US troops throughout the world.  Here is the 5-cent denomination; the 50-cent note is shown in an earlier post.

Series 541 replaced 521 and was valid until 26 May, 1961
218  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / More US Military Payment Certificates on: 3 July 2010, 18:00:12
Here's some more Monopoly Money for FACman


Series 472 was valid 22 March, 1948 through 20 June, 1951.  Here are the 5- and 10-cent denominations.  It's interesting to see "War Zone" written on the left edge of the 10-cent MPC.




Series 481 was next and was valid 20 June, 1951 through 25 May, 1954; Korean War veterans would remember this design.  I've also shown the back of the $1 note which was similar to all of the denominations in this series.
219  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / More US Military Payment Certificates Money on: 2 July 2010, 21:07:30

I've described Military Payment Certificates in an early post.  This 5-cent note is from the first series, #461.  It was issued in Europe for occupying US troops on 16 September, 1946, and two weeks later in Japan and Korea for the Pacific Theatre.  It was withdrawn 10 March, 1947.  (A very short period of use!)

Series 471 replaced the above 461 on 10 March, 1947, and withdrawn on 22 March, 1948.
220  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / Ukraine WWI/Russian Civil War Money on: 2 July 2010, 21:00:46

When the Russian Empire collapsed, Eastern Ukraine declared its independence in January, 1918; Western Ukraine followed in November 1918.  The paper currency pictured above is from the 1918 State Credit Note issue.  Ukraine was soon absorbed into the USSR, Romania, Czechoslovakia, Poland and Hungary.  The Germans briefly revived hopes of an independent Ukraine in 1941-4 but Ukrainians had to wait until 1991 for their own country.
