The National Bank's first Northern Ireland issue was an entirely new design.

Four denominations were printed. All are rare. £20 is very rare, with only three examples confirmed at the last count.

The National Bank produced a new design second Northern Ireland issue in 1937 which continued in use until the bank was taken over by Bank of Ireland in 1966.

Of these, the £20 note is quite scarce. The other denominations are scarce in high grade.

Here is an interesting £5 colour trial from about 1937.

It's the wrong color! That color is not used on any of the issued notes, I think.

Yes, this colour was not adopted on any of the issued notes. I have not seen colour trials for any of the other denominations but it is possible that some were printed.
