Guadeloupe Banque de la Guadeloupe 500 Francs ND (1942) Pick 25s Specimen. The Santa Maria, the largest ship in Columbus' first voyage, is seen on this example. As the task of printing and delivering banknotes from France to her possessions overseas became increasingly difficult during World War II, some notes were contracted out to the EA Wright Bank Note Company in Philadelphia, including all notes of this series and a few designs for Morocco. Superior colors are seen on this well preserved presentation Specimen, which also uses the French style of serial numbers. Measurements are 152mm by 85mm. PMG has graded only two equal with none higher at Superb Gem Uncirculated 67 EPQ. From the Feeling Good CollectionHID07501242017
