Marv Brooks' mother saved  100 Ruble and 50 Mark bills from her family's trip from Lida to the US in 1917.  Here are scanned images from both sides of the bills.

In the upper right hand corner of this 100 Ruble note is the monogram of Tsar Nicholas II.

This is Catherine the Great;  her monogram is to the right of her portrait.

Here are both sides of 50 Mark German banknotes from 1910.
