Limerick soviet notes numbered 1

Post#1 » Wed Apr 13, 2016 10:05 pm

Limerick Soviet 5/- and 10/- notes number 1 have surfaced

The notes are interesting, in that the 5/- and 10/- are each numbered 1, the first notes of the issue.
There is also a 1/- note, a later nunumbered variety.

The 5/- and 10/- notes are signed on reverse by Thomas Johnson, Leader of the Irish Labour Party from 1917 to 1927.
They are together with an original "Defence of the Realm - Local Pass," for the Special Military Area of Limerick, signed, stamped, and dated 25th April.
