Ploughman 10 Pound note proof signed by Brennan

Post by Mac » 15 Sep 2017 16:03

Here is an interesting partially printed double sided proof Ploughman £10 note.

It is annotated and signed by Joseph Brennan, and appears to be the final accepted version of the design. This proof shows the knock-out for the main blue printing of the Ploughman and horses.

Actual production proofs of Consolidated Banknotes are seldom seen.

Here is another Consolidated Bank Note proof £10 from the same era, also annotated by Brennan.

This one is doubly interesting in that it is a Munster & Leinster Bank specimen.

The first one gives a nice view of the layers of print on the notes.

Yes, it is the first such printing I have seen of the Ploughman notes.
These partial printings give useful insights into the design of the notes.

I'd bet that there other denominations of partially printed notes around too. might turn up sometime.
