Seems like this bank concentrated mostly on lower denominations and issued the full range of values.
Four Pounds is a nice interesting one to have.

Yes, many denominations were issued. The highest denomination I have seen for this bank is a £5 Post Bill, scan attached. This denomination is not mentioned in PMI so I suspect it is rare.

Definitely interesting to see a fiver for this bank, even if it is a Post Bill.
