Lot #50288 - World Paper Money > Alaska - ($ 12,500.00 - $ 20,000.00)
NL 10 Kopeks ND
Here is a terrific example of the mystical Alaska Sealskin (Walrus Skin) Money. Most known examples are at present ensconced in museums around the world and will never be made available to any private collector. Printed in brown ink. Hole in each upper corner as issued. The face has oval seal with eagle of Russian-American Company. Denomination in Russian wording across bottom. The back has large oval guilloche across most of surface with Russian script and two bars below, one for handwritten serial number and the other for printed signature of the Director. The late numismatic scholar Randolph Zander compiled all known information into a booklet published by the Russian Numismatic Society in 1996. Taking facts from that publication, Zander indicates that the Russian-American Company was founded in 1799 for the purpose of trading in furs. A special currency was desired, and the first notes were made in 1816 on heavy card stock with a different design. It was not until 1826 that parchment and skins began to be used and the design of the presently offered piece introduced. From that date forward to 1858, most were printed on parchment of varying quality, but a certain quantity was made on a more or less heavier substance like salvaged walrus hide. Total number of different printings or issues is believed to be eight, ranging from 1816 to 1858. Notes wore out easily from the rugged climate and new issues were always in demand. Many notes lost most of their printing in about four months as even the parchment stood up badly. Serial numbers were especially vulnerable to rubbing and wear, and often faded fast. We are immensely pleased to offer this extremely rare and historic scrip from our 49th state. PCGS terms this "Fine 15".

Lot #50294 - World Paper Money > Algeria - ($ 4,500.00 - $ 5,500.00)
96 1000 Francs 23.3.1945
Woman and sailing ship/farmers and woman with Liberty. A most unusual type given the rest of its contemporary issue-other Algerian notes of the 1940s were much larger size and had a considerably older design. Likely an extremely limited production as a completely new design was issued the following year. Not illustrated in the Standard Catalog. For accuracy, rounded bottom right corner. Given that this type is an outlier, it seems quite possible that it belongs with the fantastic 100 Francs and 500 Francs (#115 and #116) found several lots later in this auction.

We are pleased to offer the first treasury banknote (not a vale) of Honduras. This is reportedly part of the first of two series from 1880. Unlisted and unknown by Brian Stickney and Alcedo Almanzar in their book "The Coinage and Paper Money of Honduras (1981)". They do list the second series dated November 1880 in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, and 100 Pesos. While this first series apparently has the same denominations, the present example is the only surviving denomination from either series. Without signatures. Small hole top right; few small margin pieces missing; couple tears. Of great historical significance and one of the three rarest bank notes of Honduras. Tremendous opportunity.

22a; 22b/K23c/I22.3 100; 100 Hryven 1918
TWO NOTES. Size of approximately 181 x 122 mm. Larger than #22a, a standard note at 175 x 114 mm offered for comparison. Serial number with prefix b arranged horizontally; serial number font is different than #22a. Grey-violet underprint. Appears to be hand cut. One light vertical fold; some minor light folds and a 1 mm edge nick. Kardakoff suggested that between 2 and 4 examples were known in his 1953 catalog (RRR designation). Istomin lists four serial numbers against the b prefix in his catalogue (two of which exist in a block) - this note unrecorded. This note appears to be in better condition than those illustrated in the Istomin and Kharitonov catalogs. WBG terms #22b "AU 53". Extremely rare.

54/K50; 57/K53 50; 500 Karbowanez 10.3.1942
TWO NOTES; presentation notes with matching serial number #7 (1.000007). From the German occupation. Pictures of a presentation book for a Director of the Reichsbank containing a set of notes (minus the 2 karb.) in UNC with matching serial number 3 (1.000003) have been seen. Most of those notes were joined to pages by the left margin only. The 50 Karbowanez has two vertical creases, three light folds and a thin strip of paper glued to the back of the note at right (where it was originally joined to the book). The 500 Karbowanez has a 9mm tear where the central crease meets the top edge. The left margin is uneven where it has been torn from the book. Possibly souvenired during the turmoil of WWII.
