De La Rue Isaac Newton IBNS World Paper Money Fair 2010

A wonderful Test Note issued by Thomas de La Rue. As their name implies, these were used to test machines handling banknotes and were also a way of promoting the work of the printers. The front has a portrait of Isaac Newton, a medal, and a diagram of the planets. The back has an outline of the spaceship Challenger. The ones we have on offer here were given to all attendees to the IBNS London World Paper Money Fair in 2010 and there is an overprint on the back to denote this. Uncirculated.

Picture of Belgium, Meulebeke, World War II Set of 4

Belgium, Meulebeke, World War II Set of 4

A scarce set of notes issued by the local authorities in Meulebeke, Belgium during World War II. The denominations are 1f, 5f, 10f and 20f and they are dated 11-6-1940. Each has the rubber stamp of the City on the back, when they were used they rubber stamped the name of the Burgemeester. They also have a pin hole in the centre which is from the spindle where they were put when redeemed. Without the signature and pin hole they were not valid. One set sold at an auction in Belgium recently for EUR300 (around £260). We had never seen them before but we managed to buy a small quantity of these notes recently and are able to offer them to our customers at a huge saving. They are very interesting notes and quite attractive given the circumstances under which they were printed. Get yours while stocks last.
