Ross Bank 1800

Post#1 » Wed May 02, 2018 4:14 pm

Here's another strange denomination!

A Ross Bank 9 Shilling note. Date looks like 23 Jan 1800.

The 9 shilling denomination was also know as a 'Silver' note. The Ross Bank had two registered partners, George Roe and his brother Peter. This one is signed by Peter Roe.

I attach a later example of a 4 Guinea note from this bank. This denomination is readily available to collectors as a hoard of partly issued and non-issued notes was discovered some time ago. The attached note is a fully issued example from 1814.

I have seen very few fully issued examples of these notes. That's quite a nice one.

The 3 Guinea note appears to be scarcer than the 4 Guinea note. Here is a partially issued example without signature.

Here is a fully issued 1 Guinea note signed by Peter Roe. Few examples survive.
