Russian money and promisary notes

In October 1924 Abraham's father, Peter Bueckert died. Abram's eldest brother Johann Bueckert returned to Russia to close their father's estate. He returned with a large amount of Russian money and promissory notes. The two small bills (20 and 40 rubles) and the large torn bill (250 rubles) are currency. The larger pieces are promissory notes in the amounts of 3, 5,10, 250, and 500 rubles.
