The RSFSR issued its own first series of banknotes in 1918, releasing a series of notes whose denominations ran from 1 Rouble, pictured above, to 1000 Roubles. These notes had a basic watermark of the denomination of the note. The eagle on the back of the note is the same eagle that was used by the Provisional Government.
