News by Oct. 12, 2021- on
A very rare specimen of 1,000 francs type 1945 Minerva and Hercules (1) is currently for sale on eBay Canada (eBay item number: #363569257805). This is a copy numbered "O.00 - 00000" and perforated "SPÉCIMEN" obliquely to the left on the watermark. The note includes the first type of signatures with J. Belin, P. Rousseau and R. Favre-Gilly. As we can see in the photos (2), this specimen is not in good condition, but according to our archives, it would only be the 5th specimen listed (3)!
This sale is above all a rare opportunity to return this variant of a specimen to your collection. The current price of $ 27.60 (to date) augurs a happy outcome for a large number of collectors of Bank of France banknotes ... See you in one day and 7 hours (4)!
