SKU: WIT9730

The first 100 lire banknote of Italy was issued in 1746 (PS101r). It was a huge amount of money at the time and the notes were pretty big too. They were individually printed on a large sheet of paper and then cut to size. We bought our notes from the descendants of the family that first issued them in the mid 1700`s and all are complete with the full original sheet of paper and about as fresh as the day they were printed.

The catalogue price of this note is $500 dollars but at our price it gives you a huge saving on the catalogue price. Original notes printed some 270 years ago- they are the first Italian notes ever made.

A wonderful addition to any collection.

Philip II ruled from 359-336 B.C. and began the rise of the Kingdom of Macedon. He reformed the army and was able to dominate the rest of the Greek city-states. As he was preparing to invade the Achaemenid Persian Empire he was assassinated by a member of his bodyguard so his son Alexander the Great took over, how different history could have been! The last time we had this type they sold out in all grades and it has been hard to get more! These bronze coins grade Very Fine, show the head of Apollo on the obverse and a naked youth on horseback on the reverse. Be the proud owner of a nearly two and a half thousand-year-old coin of Philip II of Macedon, Father of Alexander the Great.

Russia, 100 Roubles 1910 Catherine The Great Crisp P13 AU/ Unc

Superb examples of the 100 rouble note dated 1910 featuring a portrait of Empress Catherine the Great on the back and in a fabulous watermark. (P13)These were amongst the last notes issued under the Russian Tsars and measure approximately 10 inches x 5 inches. At the time they were issued they were worth 4 ounces of gold which is why those fleeing the revolution stuffed their suitcases with them. While most notes we see are in circulated condition this group is from an original block and are in wonderful condition grading AU/Unc. Wonderful notes
