IRAN Collection 
 Banknotes of the Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi era
  Third issue  -   1 9 4 8 / 1 9 5 1   


Banknotes of the third series were printed in a smaller size than the first issue in 1948 and were reprinted in 1951. The portrait of Shah is a bit smaller mostly due to its restricted borders. The images at the back side are unique drawings from ancient places in Iran, that were never used again. All the banknotes of this issue are without date and the warning box on the obverse side is ommited.
