Finland 1882 100 Markkaa Note
Our February World Paper Money CCO will be posted to our website for viewing and bidding at the beginning of next week. We are offering quite an array of countries this sale, so we encourage you to browse through the entire online catalog.
One treasure we are pleased to offer is Finland P-A48a 1882 100 Markkaa Finlands Bank in PMG Very Fine 25. This note was printed in Copenhagen. It is one of just three examples graded by PMG, with the other two also in Very Fine 25 holders. These early types are extremely scarce, and seldom trade hands at public auction. PMG comments “Tears, Pinholes.”
