Small grade but very rare!

The copy that we present to you today is in a deplorable grade ... The sale dates from more than a month and has probably gone unnoticed, because only one collector bid on this rare copy of 5 francs Type 1874 blue for Guadeloupe or more commonly called "5 francs Cabasson blue". The bill realized the price of € 900 (without fees) during the last Internet Auction Banknotes in May 2020 at cgb.fr (lot # 4380313).

It is the 3rd known banknote for the year 1891 and only the 9th copy for the Type!
