During ww2, Romania issued special banknotes by the Institutul de Finantare Externa (INFINEX) to be used during its occupation of territory within the Soviet Union. These notes circulated in the Transdniestria region from October 1941.

The unusual denomination (1, 6, 24, 120, 600, 1200) of these notes comes from the exchange rate of 6 romanian lei for 1 russian rouble.

As i heard, about 90 % of these notes was distroyed by the Red Army, when they took back this region. Does anybody have more info about these notes? I would be really interested to know how many of these was printed, how many distroyed... or any other interesting info you have about these.

Here is some info, I've tried to get an English version with google language tools but some words could not be translated. It's better than nothing, though.
