It's cardboard like material and about 1.5 times the size of a normal US Postage stamp.

This was issued in Morocco. By the Pick reference, it is P-41 issued in 1944. It is a WWII issue - probably an emergency issue. A pretty neat note and a nice image for such a small note, but this is not a particularly rare note.

 

Edit: They also issued notes similar in size in the 1 franc (dark green) and 2 franc (dark maroon) denomination.

Thank you for the information. I like to know about the notes in my collection.

If I'm not mistaken the warning at the bottom is "Counterfeiters are punished by being sent to a hard labour camp?"

 

Punished by forced labor. All the french colonial notes did the same, and in France it was "reclusion criminelle a perpetuite", confinement. In a Algeria 5 frs., it says "...Punit par des travaux-forces a perpetuite".
