Breaking news!

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)!
