Contemporary forgeries: Provincial Bank of Ireland Thirty Shillings 1832

Post#1 » Fri Jan 30, 2015 11:18 am

This is probably the most well-known early forgery, with several notes recorded so far:

Provincial Bank of Ireland Thirty Shillings 1832, No. 24542. (A so-called radar note) Watch out for these.
One of these has actually been graded as a genuine note and encased in a plastic holder—I'll post the scan of that when I come across it again.

More early forgeries to come.

Here's the graded note.

Apparently the graders didn't notice that the note is a contemporary forgery.

Here is that other PBI forgery of No. 24542.

This forged Provincial Bank 30 Shilling note made it all the way to Scotland, and was the subject of contemporary court proceedings at Edinburgh Balie Court.
