The Japanese Imperial government's 5 sen note, issued 1940, for Japanese military occupation of China.

The 10 sen note in the same series.

The 1938 50 sen note of the same military government of Japan

and the 1940 version. The difference is the title at top--7- versus 11-characters.

the 1 yen issue of the 1940 series.

5 yen 1940 note.

1938 10 yen issue.
I don't have the 1-sen nor 100-yen notes (yet!)  All denominations come in the 7-character or 11-character title versions for the early and later issues.  If you see similar designs with different colors, they may be the Imperial Japanese government issues for other occupied areas like French Indo-China.

If there's a coin shop in your area, check there.  I find them at postcard shows, too. Any antique mall or estate sale is a potential treasure trove. I use Delcampe.com to buy and sell.  it's a Belgian auction site with servers for the US, UK, and many other countries (you don't have to speak French or German)  It's geared for collectors (mostly stamps, coins, postcards, etc. not the crap I see on e-bay) and is very friendly and the staff are helpful esp. compared to e-bay.

It's a fun hobby, full of history and art; in your case it sounds like some close-to-home meaning, too.

The 1943 500 yuan issue of the Japanese occupation forces and government.  Confucius is at right.

The 1945 100 yuan note shows Huang Ti at right and the Imperial Resting Quarters on the left.
the iconography the Japanese chose is very interesting on many of these.

The same series in the 500 yuan denomination.  the Temple of Heavan is at left.

A 5 yen note issued in 1938.  It's a direct over-print of the contemporary 5 yen note in Japan (which didn't have the reddish characters; otherwise it was identical.)  This was used by Japanese in China, especially in the military, I believe.

The 1945 100 yen military issue.  Again, similar to a then-current Japanese note except for the red over-print.  It also comes as black on green & violet and black on light blue (the note picture would be called light-brown on green.)

Thanks, FACman and Monty!   Maybe that's why I'm a collector--never have to regret giving somthing away.  Wait, I actually sold the 500 mils Palestine money posted earlier.  I regret that even though I got $300 for it, selling to an Egyptian currency dealer. 
You made someone else happy, Monty. . .

1941 Bank of Communications 10 yuan banknote for China.

Central Bank of China 1942 10 yuan note.

1945 500 yuan note with Sun Yat Sen at center.

the Farmer's Bank of China's 10 yuan banknote from 1940.

Central Reserve Bank of China 1 yuan note from 1940.

The 10 yuan note from the same bank and year.
the Central Reserve Bank of China was a 'puppet' bank of the Japanese government and occupying military forces.  In order to gain more acceptance, the Jpanaes put Sun Yat Sen (a national hero of the Chinese) and his masoleum--perhaps as a subtle jibe at him.
267  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: General Discussion Area / Re: 9 dead as Israeli forces storm Gaza aid convoy on: 1 June 2010, 21:43:20
If the ship was merely sending humanitarian aid, there are ports where such aid is accepted. (It must be cleared since Israel has been attacked by rockets in the past; rockets which appeared in Gaza disguised as humanitarian aid.)  15,000 tons of aid is processed each week this way. 
Shame on Insani Yardim Vakfi and the Free Gaza Movement for using hundreds of innoncents as pawns in this game. I agree that these groups were counting on Israel to react; they were hoping for more dead--it's their modus operandi.

Here are the 1 yuan and 5 yuan notes from China issued in 1937, the year Japan fully invaded China thus beginning the war in ernest for these two countries. The Bank of China used Sun Yat Sen on a lot of its currency at this time.






Here are the 5-, 10-, 25-, 50- and 100-yuan denomination banknotes for the same Bank of China 1940 issue.  The American Bank Note Co. printed the 1940 series while the English Thomas de la Rue Co. did the 1937 notes, above.
269  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / China WWI money on: 30 May 2010, 18:10:11

Many early 20th-century China banknotes are beautiful and this c.1914 issue is no exception.  It was issued by the Bank of Communications in China but printed by the American Banknote Co. which did much early-20th century printing for foreign governments' paper money, stamps and US stamps as well.  this says "10 yuan of the national coinage of the Republic of China."
270  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / Canada WWII money on: 30 May 2010, 18:01:41

Another WWII piece of paper money which I didn't have when I posted earlier.  This signatures date this to 1938-41 and shows King George VI.
271  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / Cambodia Vietnam-era money on: 30 May 2010, 17:53:56

The signatures on this 500 riels banknote from Cambodia date this to late 1968.  The beauty of this note is similar to many French colonies' paper money and give little hint to the 'killing fields' to come.
272  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / Burma WWII money on: 30 May 2010, 17:48:58

The 1 rupee note which the occupying Japanese printed for Burman.  It's one of the denominations I didn't have when I posted earlier.

I think the back looks like play-money!
273  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / Brazil WWII money on: 29 May 2010, 23:38:56


the Brazil 1 cruzeiro note from 1944.  The back shows the Brazilian Naval School.



The similar 2 cruzeiros note from the same year shows the Rezende Military School on the back.
Both notes are hand-signed by a government bank official.
274  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / Bohemia-Moravia WWII money on: 29 May 2010, 23:33:15

The 10 korun note from Bohemia-Moravia (an area the Germans made from part of Czechoslovakia in 1939).  It's part of the same series as the 20 korun note I posted on c.page 1 and was issued in 1942.
275  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / Belgium WWII money on: 29 May 2010, 23:29:18

50 francs/10 belgas banknote from January, 1945.

The 1943 100 francs/20 belgas banknote from Belgium.
276  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / Belgium WWI money on: 29 May 2010, 23:22:31


Paper money from Belgium issued during World War I.  The top note, a 20-franc bill, is dated 28 June 1919 but is otherwise identical to the design used from 1910 to 1920.  20 francs was the smallest denomination; they went up to 1,000 francs.
The 2nd note is from the German occupation period and dates from May 1918.
277  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / Austria-Hungary WWI money on: 29 May 2010, 23:14:46

The Austro-Hungarian 2 Krone note from 1914-15.  Issued in 1-, 5- and 10-Kronen denominations, too.  It replaced the 1913-14 series and was soon replaced by 1916-18 issue which contained values up to 10,000 kronen (inflation was bad during the war!)
278  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / Australia WWII money on: 29 May 2010, 23:09:53

The Australia 10 shilling note of 1939.  This series was issued in 1939-40 and wasn't replaced until the '50s so it was used throughout the war.  It comes in 5-, 10-shillings, 1-, 5-, 10-, 50- and 100-pound sterling denominations. Almost all of the 50- and 100-pound notes were destroyed in 1958.
279  War & Conflicts Discussions / Wars & Conflicts: Modelling, Miniatures, Postal Stamps, Music, Patches, Money / Algeria WWII money on: 29 May 2010, 23:04:40

50 centimes note from 1944.  Issued when the French re-gained control of the area.

and here is the Algeria 2 franc note from the same year.
280  War & Conflicts Discussions / World War II / Re: Don’t Gloss Over Stalin’s Crimes, Medvedev Says on: 24 April 2010, 17:10:53
Russia was "on our side" from June, 1941-late '43. Stalin was never "on our side".  The majority of Stalin's crimes occurred outside these dates.  There are other reasons Stalin's crimes were ignored.
