Here's a final note for this week from Neil Shafer's "Money of the People" collection being auctioned by Lyn Knight.
177 x 110 mm. Rare discovery piece; the only privately issued note I have ever seen or heard of used in northern Italy right during heavy fighting of World War II! There were a number of bank assegni made in 1944 but nothing like this piece. Made and issued in Ivrea by the famous Olivetti Company, so well known for its typewriters and calculators, later computers.
