Ploughman notes numbered 000001

Post#1 » Tue May 29, 2018 6:08 pm

Several examples of first prefix number 000001 notes are known among the Ploughman notes.

The latest example to be recorded is Provincial Bank of Ireland £10 note PT01 000001, pictured below.
It is likely that all of the first prefix number 000001 £1, £5, £10 notes of each bank were retained in 1929. In time, others may also turn up.

Great to see an example of another No.1 note. I imagine that most were framed for display purposes. However, this one seems to show signs of wear and tear. It is a shame that examples of denominations higher than £10 were not retained !

Indeed. The higher denominations were issued later, and in some cases much later or not at all, the novelty may have passed by then!

That's a nice one to find!
A pity about the grade. I guess the 1 and 5 pounders would also have survived somewhere.
