Today I thought I would share another pick-up I found in my coin dealers bargain world currency bin. Below are 2 photos of a Bulgarian 3 Leva note. The word leva translates to "Lion". This note was printed in Moscow and was in use from May 1952 till march 1962. This was during the period Bulgaria was under communist, USSR, rule. That period ended in 1962. Briefly, Bulgaria is a Baltic nation that lies above Romania. Most of the Balkan countries seem to spend a great deal of their history in war or preparing for war. The capitol is Sofia. This note measures 120 x 60 mm. The front shows the Coat of Arms of Bulgaria. The back shows hands holding a hammer and sickle. It also has a watermark that are the capital letters, in Cyrillic, of the Bulgarian National Bank, "BNB" and State treasury Ticket. This particular note is in BU condition.. A unique piece of history I lived through. I look forward to your comments. Thanks for looking!
