One almost uncirculated wartime ten franc paper banknote issued by the London-based Belgian government-in-exile during the Nazi occupation of Belgium during World War II. Banknote is dated 01-02-43.
Currency dated 1943 issued by the Belgian government-in-exile was printed in London for use by Allied Troops after the invasion of Europe to free it from the Nazi regime. This note was acquired from the estate of a World War Two veteran and his English-born spouse.
One side is in French and one side in Dutch reflecting the dual ethnic background of Belgium – the French-speaking, Walloons in the south and the Dutch-speaking Flemish in the north.
Paper bill measures 4-3/4" wide x 2-1/2" high.
PHOTO NOTE: The grainy nature of the images are a photo distortion, and the colors appear somewhat muted. The scanning process tends to exaggerate creases and small flaws, which are usually much less noticeable when viewed in person.
CONDITION NOTE: Near mint - in Almost Uncirculated (AU) condition. One light corner counting fold. Isolated spots of light edge discoloration on the white borders.
