Thailand: Series 4 Banknotes (RTSD)
During the 2nd World War, banknotes could not be delivered by TDLR and 4 denominations (1, 10, 20 and 100Baht) were printed locally by the Royal Thai Survey Department (RTSD).
Series 4 RTSD banknotes look very similar to the TDLR banknotes with the exception that paper and print quality are far inferior. To distinguish between the two different versions, an additional inscription of Royal Thai Survey Department (กรมแผนที่) was printed at the bottom of the notes.
