I think they normally go for somewhere around the €30-€35 mark... I have one myself and the artwork is quite appealing (I love Jim Fitzpatrick's stuff anyway, so a bit of a double whammy for me! :))

It's adapted from this piece of his I believe:

I have one too. They are quite pretty. I paid around $25 for it in a small numismatic auction a few years ago.

Mac, when I make future valuation requests, can you please quote the price in Sterling? I am based in Canada, and it is MUCH easier to convert Sterling into Canadian dollars off the top of my head because the euro is so volatile nowadays. Sorry about this. I am just so sick of plugging numbers into a currency converter after valuations.

Nope. The currency of the forum is that of Ireland, currently the Euro. Most people asking will be from Ireland, and most old Irish notes turn up in Ireland. Besides, it has never been easier to obtian an accurate up to date exchange rate on the, uh, internet.

This 10 pound note is listed on eBay for 47 euros. How much should I expect to pay for it? NOTE: Pics were too large, so I had to crop, couldn't resize. Hope you can see them okay.

There is a reason for the limit on picture sizes in posts, so the forum database doesn't get clogged with heavy images—chopping them up doesn't fool the moddies!
There are free image editors available on the web, GIMP for example. Use it to modify the image down to around 50k for a speedy load time :)

This 5 pound note is listed on eBay for 18 euros. Does that sound like a fair price to pay for it?
Also, here is a proper picture of the 10 pound note.

18 Euros is about $22. that sounds ok if it has no creases (looks ok in the pic) watch out for the postage costs if it is coming from Europe.
