December 2015: Running total for December: £1 x 10, £5 x 3, £10 x 2 = £55 face value.

Last month I received a usb with about 83 Ploughman scans on it. This feedback was a direct result of the Coin News article I wrote on the PSS, and it is much appreciated. A detailed breakdown of the notes follow.

Feedback of this kind will keep improving the PSS into the future.

Notes new to the survey were added as follows: £1 x 9; £5 x 3, £10 x 2 = £54 face value.
£10 x 2
MT x 1; NT x 1

£5 x 3
HK x 2, NK x 1

£1 x 9
BA x 4; NA x 2; RA x 2; UA x 1, a nice high grade Lester signature note.

Edit 30.12.15
Added £1, BA spotted on ebay.

Generally, it will be seen that the number of £1 notes recorded relative to the other denominations is increasing.
This is to be expected in the long term, as smaller collections are added into the database.

Once again, a big thank you to all the collectors and dealers who are supporting the survey project.
We're nearly at the point where some more results are worth publishing, most likely as part of another article in Coin News.

A good haul for February so far. We'll see if anything interesting turns up at the Dublin Coin Fair this weekend.

It will be an interesting weekend in Dublin, with a General Election on Friday, and the fun of the election count on Saturday—should make it home just in time for the results!

March 2016: Total for March.
£1 x 15; £5 x 1 = £20 face value.

March starts off with two £1 notes recorded off a well known auction website. £2 in total.

EDIT: 12.03.16:
A few newly recorded notes in the forthcoming DNW auction, and from a couple of sales lists. £8 in total:
£1 x 8.

EDIT: 17.03.16:
Added £1 x 1; £5 x 1 = £6 face value

Good to see Ploughmans turning up in this grade, hopefully no one will iron it!

I'll do a report on the numbers of notes seen in each grade soon. It should make for some interesting reading.

I've been looking at the grades of the notes lately.
I have about 2000 notes to grade there.

One of the interesting things about the Ploughman Scan Survey data images subset is the relatively few £1 notes recorded with graffiti on them—I remember lots of Ploughmans with writing on them in the old days.

There are also some other trends emerging: people are still bleaching notes, with less skill (if you can call it that) than they did 30 years ago! Some really dopey cretins out there. I've seen a good spread of notes that have been bleached since I first recorded them—ebay is becoming a wasteland of these.

£1 x 52, £5 x 8, £10 x 3 = £122 face value.

68 notes, new to the Ploughman Scan Survey (PSS) added from Whyte's The Eclectic Collector 2016 auction, on 14 May, 2016.
Breakdown as follows:
BA x 13, BK x 1;
MA x 6, MK x 1, MT x 2;
NA x 30, NK x 5;
PA x 2, PT x 1;
RA x 1, RK x 1.

There are also two £10 notes and seven £5 notes in the sale which are already recorded in PSS.

The lowest grade note is a National £10, heavily repaired, which has been up several times before, always reserved too high!

Among these notes is a Provincial Bank of Ireland £10 note with Kennedy signature. This is interesting, as it is one of the rarer notes, but also it is outside of the known run of 17.7.39 £10 notes. It is also well circulated, pointing to the possibility that all notes of this date were put into circulation, even though they were likely extraordinary issue.

Provincial Bank of Ireland Ploughman 17.7.39. Kennedy signature.

There is a lot about the Ploughman notes which remains to be discovered.
