Lady Lavery £5 Mulberry Specimen

Post#1 » Thu Mar 15, 2018 7:50 pm

Lady Lavery notes with mulberry serial numbers are well documented on the Irishpapermoney site. Interestingly, this variety is also seen for specimen notes. A scan of a 1963 specimen £5 note with mulberry serials is attached. An example with standard red serial numbers from 1964 is included for comparison.

That is very interesting!
The mulberry tone on the note is quite strong also, a very attractive example.

The mulberry makes for a really pretty specimen, and a nice variety too.
