Newbie who found you while looking to identify old notes. Cleaning out old files and came across some old currency that I believe was brought back from WW2. Most of which I can figure out what they are but these 2 have me stumped..Any help is appreciated 20200430_092837.jpg  20200430_092845.jpg  20200430_092955.jpg  20200430_093002.jpg

Mt. Fuji and cherry blossums!   It doesn't get more Japanese than that!  A keeper for sure.
At the time that note was issued it had spending power of about a quarter.  
It was probably tucked away after the war when the yen had devalued by a factor of 100 or so.

The upper note is, I think, a chinese 1/100 yuan note.

Welcome to the forum @fingerpicker
I am unable to identify the notes, but I’m confident that one or more of our members will chime in once they see your thread. In the meantime, I’m providing you with a link to a website with most World notes. It’s an informative website that may help you now and in the future.

@fingerpicker Looks like it's a 1 Fen note from the Fukien Provincial Bank in China...dated 1938.

Correct but I think it might be 1937.

I would be interested to buy that one if you go to sell it.

From the catalog, 1938. Its a really poor image though, so your mileage Capture.jpg  may vary

I'm certainly no Chinese historian nor do I speak or read the language, but I believe the date is 27 years (7 + 10 x 2) into the Republic of China (1912), so counting 1912 as year 1, 26 more would put it in 1938.  I could be wrong, but that's my understanding of how to interpret the date.  :-)

OOooh I get it now, it's one of those face book things. 7+10 x 2 is 34. Or maybe 107 or 72. Or, using metamath and intuitive numbers, an indeterminate value based on the collapse of the known universe.

I think early 1938, western style, might count as 1937 eastern style ...
like, you know, that chinese new year's thing happens well after Jan 1 ....

The dates of the Chinese Republic reckon from 1911 even though the founding of the Republic is January 1, 1912.

Thanks you to all who contributed and helped. I have learned what I have and a bit of Chinese history.
