Our October World Paper Money Collectors Choice Auction is currently available on our website for viewing and bidding. We are pleased to offer a large assortment of notes this sale, so be sure to thoroughly browse the online catalog. One rarity we are offering is lot 73136 – France 1918 (ND 1938) Banque de France 5000 Francs P-76 in PMG Very Fine 20.

This large size 1918 high denomination from the Bank of France offers excellent eye appeal for the assigned grade. Some pinholes are noticed throughout while PMG comments "Repaired." Here is a rare, key note that is seldom offered at auction and is surely missing from many of the most extensive collections of French Paper money.

We are currently taking consignments for our January 2022 NYINC sale. To consign your U.S. paper money and world paper money, contact a consignment specialist at 800-458-4646 or visit StacksBowers.com.
