French Franc


Recommended Posts

I was going through some of my mother's old family thing and i found an old 1000 franc note from, i think 1795.

Hmm, as far as I know that was the very first year when (decimal) franc notes were issued; until 1795 French paper money was denominated in livres and sols. But those first post-revolution notes did not have "AD" years, I think. Maybe it is a later issue that somehow refers to 1795? In case you have a picture, it would be great if you could post that (or a link to it) here ...
