Japanese Occupation Currency
The other day, Mathan posted a comment asking if I'd ever seen Japanese Pesos. This is the money that was printed by Imperial Japan for use in occupied Philippines during World War II. My grandfather was a supply officer on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific and brought home a small collection of bills that interested him.
(Japanese Half Guilder)
Perhaps you noticed, this blog has a number of readers from the Netherlands, so instead of posting a Peso, I've decided to post a half guilder from the occupied Dutch East Indies.
