Allied Invasion Currency Set

When the Allies invaded Europe, the question of paying the troops arose. 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.
