Well, the bottom note is a Japanese occupation note for the Philippines. Not worth much,I've seen plenty in dealer's junk boxes.Makes for an interesting collection when you get all the denominations though.

The others,all I can tell you is the country... confused-smiley-013.gif

The second note is from Special Army Currency (SAC) issues that were printed for use by Allied forces during the post-war occupation of Berlin and Germany. They are descended from the Allied Military Currency (AMC) that was used during the war, and are a pre-cursor to MPC issues.

 

Denominations from these issues are quite scarce.

The top note is a one Yuan ($1) note from Taiwan.

 

The four characters on the top say "Central Bank", the two large characters in the center say "One Yuan" and the seven small characters at the center botton say "Republic of China - Taiwan".

 

The picture is of Sun Zhong Shan who is famous in China for fighting the Japanese during the occupation years. The city of Zhongshan in Guangdong province (on the pearl delta about one hour and a half north of Hong Kong by ferry) is named after him, which means "Central Mountain".

 

Taiwan celebrates many of the famous Chinese generals prior to the communist take over on thier notes. I have no idea of the value however.

 

By the way, I happen to be in Zhongshan at the moment as I write this.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Jim

As a follow-up. The Cantenese spelling of Dr. Sun Zhong Shan is Dr. Sun Yat-Sen. He is considered as the Father of Modern China and one of the founders of the Republic of China.
