Yuan notes dated MG 14 = 1925. All Yuan notes with this date were printed by American Bank Note Co. 1 Yuan notes show on front the so-called Imperial palace Dazheng Hall (故宮大政殿 ) in Shenyang. The 5 Yuan notes show the so-called Qingdongling Watchtower (清東陵角樓 ). The 10 Yuan notes show a canal scene.

We can distinguish several types (series, if you want).
Notes with 天津 / TIENTSIN. We know 1 Yuan (brown), 5 Yuan (red). These notes are very rare, I know of only 1 single 1-Yuan-note (A104275A) and 1 single 5 yuan note (T20820A), from Chinese books. Of the 10 Yuan note I have never seen one. All notes bear signatures 6 (at right) and 5 (at left). No picture available here.

Notes with 哈爾濱 / HARBIN. These notes show the signature combination 3 + 4. Most (but not all!) notes show a red square seal: 監理管印 ) = seal of the supervisor.  This seal was applied by the Japanese after taking over the Harbin branch of the Frontier Bank.

1 Yuan MG 14 = 1925. Green, serials A……C.

Die 5-Yuan-note of this series is also green. Serial no. known are A……C and A……D, more suffixes are possible (only a few notes were seen by me).
Here a note with the seal of the (Japanese) supervisor plus control character 哈 ("ha" for Haerbin).
