Good eyes; I meant this as a joke, of course.

Actually, that's the older DPRK currency which was replaced in 2002 (I think) in a currency revaluation scheme which was meant to put an end to black market activities, illegal trade with China, etc. Actually, it produced a big public backlash as people's savings were wiped out and the finance minister, economics minister, or whatever he was called, was executed for his trouble.

This particular note came from a Pyongyang restaurant last summer; they had some old notes around and didn't mind giving them away.
