In February 1918, a specially created Expedition for the production of banknotes printed on the order of the Rostov n / A office of the State Bank the first Don money-credit cards worth 10 rubles.
The red-colored tickets, measuring 150 mm X 90 mm in the presence of a neutral text, had an emphatically anti-Bolshevik design: on the back of the bill was placed the so-called naz. The 'shield of the Amazons' is a silver badge on the dress uniform of the officers of the Volunteer Army.
Out of the allowed issue volume of 300 million, 900,000 rubles were printed-already at the end of February, red ones entered Rostov.
Ataman Nazarov, of course, was shot, and the Don dozens were 'pardoned' despite the 'shield of the Amazons': the Reds needed cash on the Don no less than the whites.
The Military Commissar of the Don Republic, F. G. Podtelkov, instructed Gulbin, the manager of the Rostov office of the State Bank, to continue issuing Don rubles, without delaying to adjust their design.
