Special List of Palestine and Israel Banknotes

Special List Of Palestine And Israel Banknotes

NOTE: THIS LIST IS NOW CLOSED AND IS INCLUDED HERE FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. ITEMS THAT HAVE NOT SOLD WILL BE INCLUDED ON OUR "2008 ISRAEL, PALESTINE, JUDAICA STOCK LIST."

Just as we were finishing work on our recent auction catalog we had the opportunity to buy a nice collection of Palestine and Israel Currency. And then, a week before the auction closed we finally bought (after 3+ months of trying) another collection of Palestine and Israel paper along with numerous other Israeli coins. Those other coins will be listed at a later time. We now have the largest inventory of both Israel and Palestine currency (19 notes!) we've had in 20+ years. This is all fresh material, some of the notes have not been offered for sale since we sold them in the 1970's. All prices NET to everyone. An * indicates that a photo is on our website or will be soon. We've listed many by series letter or number as we know that many people collect this way. If no series letter is indicated when ordering we will send a note of our choice. We did not list series letters after 1955 but we have many different series letters in stock.
