The first 100 lire banknote of Italy was issued in 1746 (PS102). It was a huge amount of money at the time and the notes were pretty big too. They were individually printed on a large sheet of paper and then cut to size. We bought our notes from the descendants of the family that first issued them in the mid 1700`s and all are complete with the full original sheet of paper and about as fresh as the day they were printed.
The catalogue price of this note is $500 dollars but at our price it gives you a huge saving on the catalogue price. Original notes printed some 270 years ago- they are the first Italian notes ever made.
A wonderful addition to any collection.
