  • Description

When the Allies invaded Europe, the question arose of exactly how to pay the troops. If the United States troops were paid with US dollars, the already fragile economies of the newly liberated areas would collapse due to black market influences. The solution reached was to pay the troops with local "Invasion Currency" printed in the United States but issued in local currencies. Francs in France, Lire in Italy, and Marks in Germany. 

This idea was not new, the Germans had a similar idea for their troops in captured nations. This set includes Francs (2, 5, 10, 50, 100) Lire (1, 2, 5, 10, 50, 100) and Marks (1, 10, 50, 100) a total of 15 bills! An excellent addition to our product line, and to your knapsack.

I have a question I need labels for a 1859 Sharps it is a 54 caliber . I notice your labels say 52/100 caliber am I missing somthing

Hello,

The Sharps labels are copies of the labels found in Echoes of Glory, Arms and Equipment of the Union page 46. Since I print all my labels, I can put 54 on there if you wish. Just mention it in the comments when you order the labels. Thanks for asking. Bob

John,

The Sharps rifles at the time were 52 caliber. The modern reproductions are 54 to match modern made ammo.

I don’t sell a reproduction of the package, but someone made one years ago and gave it to me. I don’t know if it is an accurate reproduction or made up. If I can find it in my files I’ll send you information.
