The 7th wonder of the Banque of France

Following a very brief but very rewarding trip to the provinces, we brought you some nice surprises! To begin with, we are pleased to present the 7th copy of the mythical date of September 4, 1941 for the 50 francs Type 1941 Jacques Cœur (Ref. Fayette-Dessal: # F.19.13 or Pick: # 93). The note is numbered "S.114-25036" and is in VF grade.
