s Third Issue T18 Dash in No. Black serial number and single prefix A variety recorded only 1 to 40 issue 1918 serial number A/3 156998, Fine - VF with several Pinholes in the body of the note but fairly well kept, presentable and Very Rare now more than a century old note. An interesting inked annotation on the reverse reads "U.D.F to F.U.G / Peace day / 11 Nov 1918" which is indeed the date of the armistice signed at Le Francport near Compiegne that ended fighting on land, sea and air in World War I between the Allies and Germany, also known as the Armistice of Compiegne where it was signed at 5:45 a.m. by the French Marshal Foch and came into force at 11:00 a.m. Paris time on 11 November 1918 and marked a victory for the Allies and a defeat for Germany, although not formally a surrender. It is uncertain if the lettering was made on this exact date but it is very likely as the first issue date for these notes is 22nd October 1918 which puts them at the appropriate time, so this makes a very interesting piece which possibly had and still is bearing a significant historical echo across the decades
