Whytes 'The Eclectic Collector' auction
June 13, 2015. A selection of Ploughman notes, including a few rarer items.


There are 38 Ploughman notes in the Whytes sale, with a few nice grade notes.
Notable Lots in the sale are: 317, a nice 1931 Northern Bank One Pound Ploughman; 318, a 10.6.29 Knox signature Northern Pound—this is a rare note, it will be interesting to see what it fetches. Bot notes are estimated at 2-3K.

There is one £10 note in the sale, a washed Munster & Leinster, 1938.

Only three of the notes have been recorded in PSS, including the £10 and the Knox Northern £1. They were recorded way back around 1996.

There are also some other Irish notes in the sale, the most interesting being a £100, dated 9.12.37, graded at About very fine. This note is rare in such a grade. Nice to see it offered.

Spink, London also have an auction of World notes on 12 April, 2016 which has a few Irish notes in it.

Several are notable, as follows, though I am not usually into Specimen notes:
Lot 428. Red Ploughman Specimen £10, of the type that De La Rue produced as examples of their printing. This one might be more interesting, though. Have to have a closer look at it.
Lot 429., £1 1928 Specimen; and Lot 430., £10 1928 Specimen are both also interesting.
