Central Asian Note from 1919

Central Asian Note from 1919

The back of this Central Asian note (issued 1919 after the Bolshevik Revolution, but prior to the full consolidation of the Soviet Union) indicates that the note is backed by opium in the national reserves. Though gold is pretty strong these days, we suppose some might favor return to the opium standard. www.uncorneredmarket.com/2007/12/in-opium-we-trust-ponder...
