Info please on these French notes.
« on: January 03, 2018, 10:07:55 PM »
As I rarely handle banknotes, my references are scant; a Krause going back to 1960.

These two beaten up notes date from the revaluation somewhere I believe in the 1950s. The lower note, Banque  l'Algerie et la Tunisie bears the date 29-10-1956, but what year was this note and its companion issued?

First note is France P M14, 5 new francs on 500 francs ND (1960), military note issued for the French occupation zone in Germany.

Second note is Algeria P 111, issued in 1960. The symbolism refers to Algeria as a wine producing country.

Please repost in a separate thread. This note should go on a different sub-board.

The two notes together would be typical souvenirs of a soldier who was posted in both parts of the world.
