Zany prefixes, from MM to Y2K. And N for the replacement, the usual letter was Z, I think.

MM and Y2K are the only known prefixes for the standard issue notes. Yes, Z would be the more usual prefix for a replacement note but in this case N was used. I guess they wanted to do something different for such a radically different design.

Interesting errors are not often seen for polymer notes as there are several production controls in the printing process. Here is an unusual example of a cutting error on a £10 Bank of Ireland polymer note. This is the first example of this type of error that I have seen.
