Here is an example of the £1 note with Ambrose Ussher Congreve as lead partner. The serial number is lower than the other example posted where he is crossed out as partner.

The usage of notes with a partner crossed out is interesting. A sort of overprint to make the notes usable after circumstances changed. It could be regardedas a variety.

Interesting to note that there is another variant for the £1 notes with the partners initials missing below the vignette to the left. The section for the date bottom left is also missing. This may be an early specimen.

The notes of this bank have attractively designed vignettes. The vignette of the £1 note is attached and shown in more detail. There are a number of elements including the Waterford Coat of Arms and City Motto, ‘Urbs Intacta Manet Waterfordia’. This translates as ‘Waterford remains the untaken city’, a motto granted to the city by King Henry VII. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waterford).
