    Scarce January 1, 1720 10 Livres "John Law" Note

    La Banque (Royale) January 1, 1720 10 Livres SCWPM# A16b PMG Very Fine 25.
    These French notes are a historic currency and have been collected alongside the American series for generations. They have been listed in all editions of Newman's Early Paper Money of America. The second series Banque Royale notes are scarce. The Boyd-Raymond-Ford notes were dispersed many years ago, and those pieces are now sporadically reoffered in American sales. This example was printed on watermarked white paper and has an embossed seal. Part of the indent design text at the left is visible. With subtle paper tone, some moderate wear, and a cluster of lower left pinholes. Noted by PMG as "Previously Mounted, Pinholes." Ex: our Eric P. Newman Part VII sale, October 2015, lot 18858; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. A quintessential type note from this fascinating series.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.

    Estimate: $800 - $1,200.
