This emergency currency note, issued in 1942 shortly after the declaration of Manila as an open city, bears the face of Filipino President Manuel L. Quezon. The red seal and watermark throughout the note bear the phrase “Commonwealth of the Philippines,” a reminder that Quezon’s government was under the United States of America.
