Numizon Sale # 4


We can hardly believe it, but here is already our 4th catalog of fixed-price banknotes. Like the previous ones, this sale offers once again and mainly banknotes from the Bank of France. However, we have added many foreign banknotes to it in order to meet the expectations of our international subscribers. The lots are almost all graded by PMG. This certification should help reassure buyers and is increasingly becoming the essential standard in the global banknote market.

With feedback from users of previous sales, we have made the choice to display the reserve prices set by our depositors. This is the great novelty of this catalog. Your offers must therefore be higher than these prices!

How it works ?

There are two purchasing options available to you: immediate purchase or the possibility of making an offer lower than the displayed price. The 116 lots in the sale will be available for "Buy Now" from Monday, March 15, 2021 at 9:00 am. The proposed sale prices reflect our estimates of the current collector's banknote market. However, you have the possibility of placing an offer lower than the displayed price until Sunday March 28, 2021 at 22:00. The reserve price having now been indicated, it should be able to help you establish the most relevant offer. Once the sale is closed, for each lot, the best offer received will win the lot. In the event of a tie in price, the first offer received will win. Lots that have not received any offer will be returned to their owner.
