Lost and Stolen Banknotes

I've been the victim of a theft, and would like the IBNS community to be aware and on the lookout for a couple notes.

Two French banknotes:

  1. SCWPM P.2/Fayette F.02.33 alph Serial C.8688, #267 217177267
  2. SCWPM P.131c/F.48.08 Alph P.130 #37204

were purchased by me from the Compagnie Generale de Bourse (CGB, Paris France) Papier Monnaie 14 auction of June 25, 2009 as auction lots 47 and 247.

For a variety of reasons, they were not shipped to me until August 7th.

Upon delivery to me on August 20, 2009, I found the package empty. I will be pursuing this through the postal services, of course.

These notes are quite rare, both are in UNC condition. If you come across these notes through a dealer, auction, eBay, or other source, I would certainly appreciate contact through www.FrenchBanknotes.com
