DNW are certainly getting the best in Irish notes these days, though Whytes in Dublin are worth keeping an eye on also.

Fonsie Mealy Centenary Sale
Saturday 23 April 2016. An auction of Independence era collectibles, including three Limerick Soviet notes.


Fonsie Mealy have rather a good a auction of Irish historical items related to the Independence era, "The Centenary Sale" on 23rd April. The sale includes three Limerick Soviet notes, one of each denomination issued. Lot 371.

These notes are interesting, in that the 5/- and 10/- are each numbered 1, the first notes of the issue.
The 1/- note is a later nunumbered note.

The 5/- and 10/- notes are signed on reverse by Thomas Johnson, Leader of the Irish Labour Party from 1917 to 1927.
They are together with an original "Defence of the Realm - Local Pass," for the Special Military Area of Limerick, signed, stamped, and dated 25th April.

There are also some Fenian bonds in the sale, including a rare 500 dollar bond, though in very low grade.

Whytes have some interesting Irish banknotes in their Eclectic Collector auction on 14 May 2016.

There are a few old notes, 72 Ploughman notes, and a selection of Lavery notes, including two 1928 £100 notes in low grade.

The most significant item is Lot 325, a pleasing Fine, and a nice example of a very rare banknote. Dated 10.1.44, this note will fetch rather more than its conservative estimate of 4,000–5,000 Euro.

Central Bank of Ireland 20 Pounds war code 1944.

There are 72 Ploughman notes in various grades, including Lot 306, a Provincial Bank of Ireland £10 note, dated 17.7.39, with Kennedy signature. This is one of the rarest signature varieties for the Ploughman series, and is estimated at 1,200–1,500. It will likely fetch around double this figure.

Lot 230 is a Provincial Bank of Ireland ledger of approximately cancelled 400 half-notes. An interesting item for research purposes.


Also up in the sale is Lot 197, one of the 1995 20 pence test pieces.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EDIT:
These two notes each did very well. £10 Ploughman fetched 10,500 plus fees; £20 1944 fetched 9,500 plus fees.

Heritage Auctions
Thursday 8 September 2016. An auction of world Banknotes, including some interesting Irish notes.



Heritage auctions have a significant group of Ploughman notes, as well as other Irish notes in their upcoming sale on September 8th 2016.

It is unusual for a US-based auction to have a large offering of Ploughman notes.

Among the lots, there is a nice VF grade Northern Bank £10 note, estimated conservatively at 25,000–35,000 USD. This is the nicest Northern £10 that I have yet seen. There are two about vf notes recorded in PSS, the rest are low grade notes. It will be interesting to see what this note fetches.

Also being offered are four Northern £5 notes and 24 Hibernian Bank£5 notes, almost all of which are in the vf to ef region.
The appearance of so many £5 notes of one bank together will likely be reflected in weak prices realised—a good opportunity to pick up a decent fiver or two.

All of the notes are in PMG grading packets, some of them being overgraded imho.
Some of the estimates are too high for the fivers.

There are four Ploughman £10 notes, the best of which is the Northern Bank. Munster & Leinster, Hibernian, and Ulster are the other banks. DNW have a much nicer Hibernian £10 note in their upcoming auction.

Undoubtedly, the attention will be on the Northern £10, a nice example of a rare note. I remember when there were only three of these recorded, back around 1995.

EDIT: pic of the Northern £10 Ploughman £10 Pound note added.

There is a range of other Irish notes in the sale also, including some early northern Ireland notes.

EDIT: The note sold for $32,900 including fees.

Whytes 'The Eclectic Collector' auction
January 21, 2017. A selection of Ploughman notes, some Lavery notes, and some seldom seen Hibernian Bank tokens.


Whytes, Dublin have an Eclectic Collector sale on January 21 2017. The sale has a scattering of Lavery and Ploughman notes (15 x £1) in it, which are all new to PSS.

Of more interest are a group of Hibernian Bank tokens, issued in 1827. These are rarely seen as issued notes, with only proofs and specimens generally being offered.

There are also some Fenian and De Valera bonds on offer, some with additional documentation.
