Hibernian Bank Token dated 10 July 1826 fetches €2,700 in auction in Whyte's, Dublin.

Whyte's Eclectic Collector auction on 21 January had a selection of rare issued Hibernian Bank Tokens on offer.

The best of the Hibernian Tokens, Lot 486 ,an intact cancelled £1 note in about VF grade, sold for 2,700 Euro plus fees (approximately 25% in total). A decent result for a rare item, and well above the pre-sale estimate.
Four more intact notes fetched between 660 and 1,800 Euro plus fees.
Cut cancelled notes in low grade fetched less than 200 euro each, which may be an undervaluation given the scarcity of these items. however, it is also relevant that these Hibernian Token issues are very much niche items in Irish note collecting.
