Whytes 'The Eclectic Collector' auction
April 6, 2019 includes 80 Lots of Irish notes.


The 80 Lots in this sale comprise largely £20 notes.

By far the most interesting banknotes on offer are Lot 454, and Lot 455, a pair of war code £20 notes, rarely offered in any grade.

Although not graded, both notes are quite nice, Lot 454, dated 8.3.43 looks to be in the VF region; and Lot 455, dated 7.6.43 a bit lower grade.
Both dates have previously been recorded, though these two notes are new to the census. Both notes are a considerably better grade than the average seen for this type.

A nice pair of rare notes in decent grade.
It will be interesting to see what they fetch.

There are a lot of £20 notes, both A Series 1976 and B Series 1981-1983 in nice grade, offered as small runs in sequence, as well as some earlier £20 notes, including a 1949 in low grade.

Additionally there is a good variety of other denominations 10/- through to £10 offered in mixed lots.

The auction catalogue can be viewed on Whytes website and downloaded as a pdf.

A nice selection there. Those early date Lavery £50 notes are seldom seen in such nice grade.
