Description La Banque (Royale) January 1, 1720 100 Livres SCWPM# A17b. PCGS Very Fine 35 Apparent. As noted above, notes from this second series are scarce, particularly so in the higher denominations. The Ford notes were dispersed several years ago and are now only occasionally seen in American sales. This note was printed on watermarked white paper, with a portion of longer indent text at the left visible, and has an embossed seal. There is subtle tone on this attractive example. A noted "Small Edge Tear at top Right of Center" is not readily seen. An excellent "John Law" type note, this fits into several genres of collections. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society Realized $587.50. Newman VII (Heritage Auctions, 10/2015), lot 18062. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
