Comments

This note has a control instead of a serial # with 2 prefix letters and 1-3 numerals.
Some Shipov notes were printed later by the Provisional and also the Soviet Government. These have higher prefix letter-number combinations and are of lighter color than the Czarist period ones.

There are 13 signature variants.

1915 modification of series 1898, using  simplified numeration: 2 letter prefix followed by a 1-, 2-, or 3-digit control number, rather than a full serial numbers. Control numbers НА-1 - НВ-524.
