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.

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.

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

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  It was issued 21 October, 1968, and withdrawn 11 August, 1969.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Series 681 was issued for use in Vietnam on 11 August, 1969, and withdrawn on 7 October, 1970.

I was in Vietnam for the 661 & 681 series. I used to carry about $300 at all times, as we were always playing cards during down time.

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!

1942 20-franc banknote from Algeria.  Dated November 11, this would be issued under an Allied government after the Vichy government and the Germans left.

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.

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.)

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.

Dated 1 July, 1941, this Malaya 20-cent banknote was actually issued in 1945.  King George VI is at left.
