Two Lavery notes with the same serial number :)

This pair of notes have been known for a long time, first noted in Irish Numismatics about 30 years ago.

Currency Commission One Pound 1941 & Central Bank of Ireland One Pound 1976 with same number 79L 022412

Possibly the highest denomination note ever issued by an Irish bank.
Bank of Ireland 500 Pounds, 1869.

EDIT:
A Lavery cutting error—my favourite kind of error note.

This is the only Ploughman error note I have ever seen or heard of.

Here is an interesting example of two Lady lavery £1 notes from 1967 with the same serial number and date. The notes appear to be genuine.

@DOC Welcome to the forum!
Interesting indeed.
Hmm. I wonder how that could happen. It might be that one of them could be a replacement for an error on 777886 or 777885, which was set with the wrong number, in error.


Here's a serious rarity, an error on a replacement note :D
A printed fold, causing the date to appear on the back of the note when unfolded. I wonder if this replacement was itself replaced.

This Austrian 1000 Gulden note from 1841 bears an interesting resemblance to Bank of Ireland notes of the same era. The BoI design first appeared in 1838.

Bank of Ireland One Pound 1943. Northern Ireland issue.

Here's an interesting note I came across recently. It is a Bank of Ireland Pound signed by Adams, which has been counter-signed by Chestnutt and Guthrie, who were both later signatories of the BoI notes (Chestnutt,1960s; and Guthrie, 1970s).
