The notes of this Bank are attractively designed. Here is an unissued 1.5 Guinea note from the early 1800's.

That is a nice note, and in good grade too.
Another wierd denomination. I guess usage determined what denominations were printed.

Kind of odd they'd change the design so completely. Maybe they had problems with forgeries.
Two nicely designed notes tho.

that's a very attractive banknote, and another odd denomination — 3 Guineas!

The viginette on the two bills above are quite different from the others posted.
I guess that shows 3 basic designs for the bank.

Well spotted. It looks like that are 3 basic designs for the vignettes. The fortresses and ship appears to be missing from the right side of the 1 Guinea notes. However, I do not have a detailed enough scan of a 1 Guinea note to prove this beyond doubt. If anyone has an example of this note, it would be interesting to see the detail of the vignette.
