Comments

این سری ازاسکناسهای ناصرالدین شاه در شهرهای : آبادان بوشهر مشهد.  شیراز . رشت . همدان . اصفهان . کرمانشاه. بصره .  تبریز. تهران مورد   .استفاده قرار میگرفته
اسکناسهای منتشر شده باید حتما دارای مهر مخصوص مامور دولت علیه ایران (که همان بازرسی و حسابرسی دولت بود) می بودند و اسکناسهای فاقد این مهر اسکناسهایی بودند که به صورت غیرقانونی از بانک خارج شده بودند.
 بریده شدن مهر اسکناس به شکل مثلث به معنای ابطال بوده است .

Used in cities:
Abadan .  Bushehr . Mashhad. Shiraz .Rasht.  Hamedan. Isfahan. Kermanshah. Basre.  Tabriz. Tehran
(the names of these cities are written on the banknotes)

The issued banknotes must have had the Seal of the Iranian government (Seal at the bottom of the banknote) and the banknotes without this Seal were banknotes that had been illegally taken out of the bank.
