Howard Daniel submitted these notes on the late Guy Cifre and his Paris shop, Numistoria. Thanks. -Editor
I have recently started working on an updated list of French stocks and bonds for my French Southeast Asia Coins & Currency
catalog. It is going to be a BIG change to what is currently in print about them. I just finished checking my list against the two Guy
Cifre catalogs; 3000 Titres Francaise, Repertories Et Cotes and La France D'Outre-Mer, 1500 Titres Repertories Et Cotes
in my library. Then I went to Guy's website at www.Numistoria.com to check my list against his inventory. I found about a 10% update,
which is significant.
He started Numistoria back in 1973 and I last corresponded with him probably in the late 1990's so I wrote an email to him about
obtaining his permission again to use the information and images only available from him. To my surprise, I received a response from his wife,
Francoise, approving the use of the information and images as long it is properly credited! She also wrote that he had passed away from cancer in
January 2008 at 63 years of age! Damn! This was news to me and I did an email search and found no obituary for him.
Francoise also wrote that her business is down and she is going to close their shop at 76 rue de Richelieu, F-75002 Paris, France. She is
going to continue the business from an office 45 kilometers from Paris and near where she now lives. The business will only be done now from the
website. She has tens of thousands of stocks and bonds from all over the world, to include many from the United States and the Americas. She can use
some business and I am going to send her an order in the near future. If anyone collects stocks and bonds, please go to the website and make an order
for one or more pieces. Her email address is contact@Numistoria.com .
