Can you help me identify where this money is from? [UPDATE] SUCCESS!

This has been in my family for a long time, and I have a stack of it. No one knows where or when it’s from, so I’m outsourcing this to the internet. Can you help?

UPDATE! Many commenters and people on Twitter have positively identified the money. In 1912, the Russian Federation honored Peter the Great with a 500 Rubel mark, which was the highest that the Russian Federation had issued up until that point. Kimberly’s comment is to an image on Wikipedia that is the same money.

  1. Those are ruble. The bottom word in the blue stamp on the back says rubles… Huzzah!!! My HS Russian is finally worth something :)

  2. I can't believe that it was so quick that someone found it! I've had this money for twenty years in various drawers and had n idea what it was. I have a little over thirty of them in a small box in our apartment!
