    French Guiana: 1933-45 25 Francs PMG 35 EPQ (P-7)

    Coins We Love
    $550.00
     

    TBB B209d. This design is one of the most recognizable of all French colonial notes. The front of this note features a wreath of tropical flowers draped at the top and the center is dominated by an allegorical maiden wearing a laurel wreath holding an olive branch. Below her is a collection of fruit. The reverse is a detailed jungle river view of an anchored ship. The note was printed by the Bank of France and was designed by Clement Serveau, a very famous painter and designer. This note type ceased to be legal tender in May of 1959, and the note is scarce today. Our offering is graded PMG VF35EPQ, one of just 10 graded by them. French colonial notes are often plagued by pinholes, tears, rust, and other defects because of the delicate paper used, and this note is free of such effects. It was therefore awarded the Exceptional Paper Quality designation.
