Republican Zone of Asturias & Leon in the north of Spain, it was minted in the famous town of Guernica. Pablo Picasso painted a huge and famous painting of his impressions of the devastating destruction and death brought upon the town by the Nazis and the JU-88 Stuka dive bombers. (Please check the Gallery area for a glance at this striking painting). This interesting period of history, with socialists (Republicans) battling nationalists (Loyalists), was a precursor to World War II. This is accentuated by fact that Nazi Germany participated in the conflict and used the experience and weapons testing as a way to help prepare their planned Blitzkreig (lightning war, with a total commitment of massive & varied forces) for attacks across Europe.
I would like to invite experts in this specialty to provide opinion on the authenticity of the examples of the series presented here.
Minted in Guernica with a mintage of 100K, it is very scarce in this reddish UNC condition.
