Where are from this note?

Have you ever happened to come by a foreign banknote and be curious to know where it comes from?
Well, sometimes it's clear: even if you don't know French, if you see BANQUE DE FRANCE you understand it comes from France. But if it says BANKA E SHTETIT SHQIPTAR it's not so easy to understand it comes from Albania.
Not to mention the banknotes of many countries born from the division of USSR or that anyway use Cyrillic alphabet or banknotes written only in Arabic.
No doubt with a good catalog you can manage in a short time, but you don't always have a good catalog at hand…
In order to help those who have a similar curiosity, I'll try to give some elements to recognize a 'strange' banknote.
Please remember I'm doing this in my free time and, like any other part of my site, it's a work in progress.
Besides, apart some exceptions, everything is based on my collection which goes from the end of the 50s up to now.
