THe Lady Lavery 100 pound note was the only 100 pound note at the time of Series B, and even a bit of Series C, so was it used activley during that time? DId banks actively issue them? Were they treated as only being worth face value?
Yes, in my memory the £100 was always a scarce denomination and seldom encountered. I recall getting a Parnell £100 note once from an ATM ! Lavery £100 notes were rarely seen and only used for significant transactions such as paying the deposit for a house or buying a car. When the first Lavery £100 notes were issued in 1928, they must have been worth the equivalent of a small fortune.
