That's Nicholas II of Russia on the stamp.

In the Scott catalog, your stamp is Russia #105(Oct1915).

There are numerous varieties of this stamp, including: perforate/imperforate, no inscription on back (originally issued as such), 4 lines of text on back (you have the 5 lines of text variety).

Is this stamp one of those used as currency?

Yes, that is correct. According to Scott, the printing on back says:

"Having circulation on par with silver subsidiary coins."

It was originally issued with the backprinting for currency, but got used for postage as well. I mean, who looks at the back of the stamp except those who collect MNH?

You will notice that in general, the postally used catalog values for these stamps are higher than for the unused stamps!

I'm wondering how one would use this stamp as postage, as it has no gum on the reverse. Somebody wanting to use this stamp for postage rather than currency would have to come up with some sort of adhesive (probably not very water soluble either). I'm guessing a legitimately used stamp would still have to be on cover. Just some thoughts.

Just simply glue it on the envelope.

I know in some Asian countries, it was common practice even until the late 1970s for people to glue the stamp onto the envelope and also glue the envelope shut. Part of it because of habit from the older generation from days in which stamps were not issued with gum (especially the tropical areas), and part of it because quite few felt the pre-gummed stamps were not as reliable as good old fashioned glue.

I do agree, sometimes they used glue that was not water-soluble. I still have a number of Asian stamps that I cannot soak off paper.

Your Russian stapms belong to different sets (the ones with sword are supposed to the first issued after the Revolution, in 1918).
