We are next door to France so to speak and I have problems getting French notes, I dont know why but they are rather expensive :ninja:

i had problems getting them also.. i must buy them from france directly.( and a strange thing, didn't found a collector to exchange). i i thing that are expensive in hi grade. but for a vf, you can find a lot of them. those notes circulated a lot.

but i love them... learned the frecnh to read them
