THE REPRODUCTIONS, BANKNOTES...
MORE RARE THAT REAL?
In recent years, we can regularly find for sale all kinds of titles "reproduction" or "copy" banknotes. I'd never really paid attention until I fall 3 unusual notes (see photos below).
The first, a 50 francs "Suez Crisis" type 1956 (Reference: Fayette # VF41.1, Pick # M16 or Schwan-Boling # 851), the second, a 100 francs "Suez Crisis" type 1956 (Reference: Fayette # VF42.1, Pick # M17 or Schwan-Boling # 852) and the third, a 1000 francs "Suez Crisis" type 1956 (reference: Fayette # VF43.1, Pick # M18 or Schwan-Boling # 853). The particularity of these three notes is their serial number and the control number: N° F.10 - 22100 for the 50 francs Suez, N° H.4 - 41445 for the 100 fancs Suez, and N°J.6 - 01880 for the 1,000 francs Suez.
Explanation by the score!
The 50 Francs Suez currently accounts for 92 banknotes in the FBOW score only 3 known alphabets (1, 2 and 3). Whence, then this 10 alphabet? The note is unique, but as it is a reproduction, there has to be an original banknote from which the copy was made?
Regarding the 100 Francs Suez, the score gives FBOW the table below, a total of 123 banknotes known distributed Alphabets of 5 (1, 2, 3, 4 and 5). It is our note reproduction (H.4) is in a rare alphabet that recognizes than 5 banknotes!
Finally, the 1,000 francs "Suez Crisis" gives FBOW table below, with a total of 30 banknotes known, spread over 3 series (1, 2, 3). As for the 50 Francs Suez, where does this 6 serial? The note is also unique, but its original must still exist somewhere?
In conclusion, our collection is really still full of mysteries... How vulgar reproductions can they be made from extremely rare tickets! If you have any information, contact me about the originals, thank you.
