Robespierre and a comically large assignat. 
Early on in the Revolution, Robespierre made his name by proposing that the assignats be cut to a more portable size so as to be more conducive to trade. Some reputable historians believe that the success of this proposal is where Robespierre got the idea to later cut citizens to a more portable size so as to be more conducive to Revolution.
This is yet another case of Robespierre’s ideals of 1789 being eroded by his madness in 1793.
