BACKGROUNDER
*  Many Afghanistan banknotes from this period exhibit what appears to be stains. It has been reported that these stains were made with chicken blood, used as a form of authentication.

Any additional information about this authentication process would be appreciated:

Comment provided 22.11.2012 from Asia:

"Bird blood is like ink. In old days it was used for many things but for Afghani banknotes they did not use blood. Because you can't pray when you had it in your pocket, you know this too very well. So it's ink not blood."

We gratefully acknowledge eBay Seller
