Bank of Limerick. Maunsell, George & Co. 1815-1820

Post#1 » Mon Dec 04, 2017 10:31 pm

George Maunsell, John Kennedy, Robert Hedges Maunsell

This bank produced a range of denominations. One of my favourite note designs. The notes are relatively common, and a lot of unissued remainder notes are around. Here’s two for starters. The 1 guinea & half is an interesting small note denomination.

The Maunsell Bank of Limerick notes are interesting as they are an early example of printing on both sides of the note. I attach the reverse of an 1819 1 Guinea note.

This bank issued a good range of denomoinations, with a good solid design and printed on the reverse too.

I have seen two varieties of Maunsell notes, one with opening hours, the other without. The opening hours in those days were from 10 till two with Friday as a Bank Holiday :). I attach an example of a 1 & Half Guinea note dated 24th August 1816 with opening hours.

This Bank also issued £1 notes. Here is an early example dated 14th Dec.1815 with opening hours. The grade is low but it is the only example of this type that I have seen.
