About This Item

These notes have been circulated, for sure. Don't think of them as a worn out old banknotes. Think of the stories that these bills could tell from all that they has seen since 1929 or 30!

As can be seen, the 5 Franc banknote is a bit tattered, but is mostly intact, with a few very minor tears starting here and there around the bill. There is a split running vertically in the center, let than an inch long, but does not run the length of the note.

Thew 10 Frank note has fared a bit better, with a bit of rough edges, and a crayon marking on the reverse

Terms of Sale

Paper Time Machines

30 day return guarantee, with full refund including original shipping costs for up to 30 days after delivery if an item arrives "not-as-described" or damaged.

Basic SHIPPING COSTS are based on the Postal Rates set Media Mail postal fees by the United States Postal Service pricing matrix, as well as the average book size and weight. As most of us know, book sizes and weights vary greatly. In the case where the shipping costs vary greatly from our Shipping Fee Matrix, the remaining fees have been included in the cost of the book. There are a few rare examples where additional fees may be added to your invoice. These cases are pointed out of the page related to said book.

However, not all is bad news, as a former purchasing manager, I can never forget my bosses mantra, "Consolidate your orders to save on shipping". In the case where the actual shipping cost is much lower, due to low weight or because the combined weight of multiple purchases allow for a more economical rate or shipping class. For example, USPS offers several FLAT RATE Priority Mail packages. This method will often same money when purchasing several heavy items such as books. We invite you to request a guaranteed/no obligation shipping price quote.
