The British printed the money, the signatures of M. V. Bernatsky and the head of the Credit Department B. K. Suvchinsky were put on them and sent a parcel to the Crimea.
But with the receipt of the money circulation ordered abroad, Bernatsky was not lucky again: in November 1920, the Reds stormed the Crimea, seized the banknotes sent from England and burned them! - as they assumed, the entire ordered edition.
Later it turned out that the Bolsheviks did not destroy all the money printed by the British.
On the back of my 100 ruble bill in the upper right and left corners there are characteristic black spots-these remain on the paper from the fire when the process of its gorenje for some reason stops.
I would venture to assume that this 100 ruble ticket escaped its fate either due to the negligence of the executors of the order, or, on the contrary, among the Red Army soldiers there were bonists who understood the value of banknotes from the circulation to be destroyed – they took out a slightly burnt, and otherwise perfectly preserved bill without any traces of its circulation.
The AG 1567315 bill is rare for 2 reasons: firstly, it escaped burning at the stake (and even has the appropriate markings), and secondly, the AA, AB, AB series have black letters, as well as the numbers of the bills, and only the AG series has a brown color instead of black.
