Unusual Ploughman Pound note proof

Post#1 » Sat May 28, 2016 10:58 pm

Here is a pic which shows some of the design thought that went into the reverse of the Ploughman One Pound note.
The rays coming out from the edges of the note are reminiscent of the design on the reverse of the 1922–1928 Bank of Ireland £1 note.

The upper version with the rays omitted was the design decided upon.
The pair show the thought process involved.

They made the right decision. The rays dont work, imo.

Btw, are the rays text, like on the bank of Ireland notes?

The rays are text.
The text reads as follows: top left, ‘PUNT•PUNT•’ repeated; top right, ‘ONE POUND • ONE POUND’ repeated; bottom left, ‘ONE POUND • ONE POUND’ repeated; bottom right, ‘PUNT•PUNT•’ repeated.
