Seller description:

Perhaps one of Georges Duval's masterpieces and one of the most baffling banknote designs ever. A lot of sacred and secret knowledge went into the creation of this note. The little central Medusa head (quite pretty, for a change) on the snake studded caduceus will probably sign this riddle with two female deities facing each other on equal terms under the name of the Being with 1000 names. Condition, considering it is such a large size note, prone to be manhandled easily, quite excellent. Folded twice, faint patches of soiling. Strong frame with only minor micro cracks. The usual piercings. Original, unpressed, unrestored note.
