POST-WAR FRENCH FRANC

The French Franc notes were re-printed after the war, probably as a counter measure against forgery but also due to an international agreement. .

This half-Franc note contains the words "Bon de Solidarity" or "solidarity purchase" as an authorized currency based on, we believe, the Bretton Woods system when multi-national delegates met in Bretton Woods, NH to create the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and agree on exchange rates based on gold.
