Okay, I was hoping I could gather more from context, but so far I am rather lost on the whole topic of assignats. I gather they are paper, and official-type paper at that, and the English are perfidious paper- fakers, but beyond that all I know of assignats is that they were occasionally  huge and represented by teeny Camille Desmoulins. Er, at least if certain cartoonists are to be believed. Can anyone give me Relevant Backstory here?
