Right to Left. Serial # list would date this one to 1929. Seller on ebay claimed it was circa 1917.

Layout is unusual for either Hebrew or Yiddish. The layout is closer to the modern Hebrew layout, with a few extra and position changes. It is missing some of the Yiddish letters (which can be and often are approximated by Hebrew letters).

Digits appear grow right to left, very non-standard.
