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.

The Whytes Eclectic Collector Auction on the 18th May had some interesting notes for sale.

A 1931 Ulster Bank £5 Ploughman with the Patton signature did particularly well. The estimate was 800-1000 but strong interest resulted in a hammer price of 2500 euro. This is a difficult note to get in nice grade and the results reflect this.

That's a really strong price for a Ploughman fiver these days.
It shows that the money is there for good grade scarce notes.

There were some very high prices realised for Irish notes in the DNW auction of 10 April 2018.

The results reflect perhaps a strong market for rare notes, and for scarcer notes in nice grade.

Some 10 Shilling notes of the Lenny collection fetched record prices, especially the very rare dates:
12.12.45, gF: £1700 + fees -Rare date
13.08.46, aF: £2600 + fees -Rare date
24.01.50, gF/VF: £1700 + fees -Rare date
01.05.36, gF: £1700 + fees
07.04.37, GVF/EF: £1700 + fees
04.08.37, VF: £1100 + fees
01.12.41, F: £1100 + fees -Rare date

Additionally, there were some other strong results:
Ulster Bank £10, 6.5.29 in About VF grade sold for £5000 + fees.
Belfast Banking company £1, 6 April, 1916, VF sold for £1400 + fees.
National Bank £10, 10 Nov 1924 VF/GVF fetched £4800 + fees.
