SOFIA. Cert. for 5 shares of 100 leva. multicolour. No 23556-60. Large format. Association formed in Sofia, 1934, to promote the interests of the war-wounded. Colourful piece, with an elaborate border. Centre has a large Balkan-style medallion, with the crown of Bulgaria, and a map of the country, showing the parts lost by Bulgaria to neighbouring countries - Greece, Rumania, Macedonia, and, strangely, Moravia. This we do not understand, since the area is now in Serbia, and Moravia is far away as a region of the Czech Republic. Also shows a medal, inscribed(in Bulgarian, of course) 'For Courage', and the map bears the slogan (also in Bulgarian) 'Everything for Bulgaria'. First time in our auctions.
