A Great Deal!
Since May 6, 2021, cgb.fr has been offering a selection of 53 world banknotes on its website at immediate purchase prices of between € 2.00 and € 40.00. It was by half-heartedly consulting this classic sale of current banknotes that we were surprised to find one of the rarest banknotes from French Equatorial Africa (Lot # b96_1335).
Indeed, a copy of the 1,000 francs type 1941 (1) issued on July 31, 1942 and numbered A 076 830 is offered at the price of € 1,000.00. The note is certainly in G grade ... but it is only the 5th copy listed in the Numizon inventory for the type in series A!
To find out more, we invite you to read or reread our study carried out on this banknote on November 16, 2019.
