I ran across this item on the web this week. Is it true? Is this really the world's smallest paper money?
The 10-bani note of the Ministry of Finance of Romania issued in 1917 (emergency WW I issue) measured (printed area) 27.5 x 38 mm (1.08 x 1.49 in) - setting the world record for the Smallest paper money, according to World Records Academy (www.worldrecordsacademy.org).
