Small Numizon will become big ...
Of course, there is a beginning to everything ... And despite the very specific conditions of this year 2020 which is coming to an end, we will still have managed to offer you our first sale of world banknotes! We would like to extend a big thank you to all the collectors who have done us the honor of participating in this "Numizon Sale # 1". Of the 115 lots offered, only 28 banknotes found a taker! We welcome this result with modesty and humility, but it is also a great encouragement to persevere in our goal of growing Numizon.
One sale drives out the other! Our second world banknotes sale is now online, admittedly with a little delay, we apologize in advance. You will therefore only have a few hours to consult the 115 new lots before the official opening Monday, December 29, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. So, to help you discover this "Numizon Sale # 2" a little faster, here is a selection of banknotes that you shouldn't miss ...
20 francs Bleu Type 1873
Lot 296648. This Algerian note dated May 7, 1910 illustrates the cover of our catalog! The 20 francs Bleu Type 1873 (Ref: # MK8b, Pick: # 72, TBB: # B118b) is the nicer of the two banknotes known in the PMG Population report. From 1862 to 1875, the Bank of Algeria issued a series of "blue" notes, technically identical to those circulating in France at the same time. Of great artistic beauty, all these banknotes (5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 500 and 1000 francs) are rare. The opportunities to bring a copy into a collection are not frequent! Not to be missed ...
