Number 000001 notes and hand-numbered prefix Terminators

Post by Mac » 24 Jan 2015 19:14

Lots of collectors like low-numbered notes. Irish low numbers notes, especially of the Lavery series and Ploughmans are quite rare. I haven't seen many.

The hand-numbered terminator notes non-extended 100000 and 1000000 are even rarer!
Serial numbers were extended from 100000 per prefix to 1000000 per prefix on Lavery notes as below.
Prior to these dates prefixes changed at 100000 which was hand-set on the note.
Type 7. 10 Shillings from 12.9.51
Type 7. £1 notes from 11.9.51
Type 7. £5 notes from 6.8.52
Type 10. £10 notes from 9.2.60
Higher denominations did not have their serial numbers extended.

A Lavery 'Terminator' 100000 note.
Early prefixes went up to 099999 with 100000 hand-set on the note. Later notes had the serial numbers extended to 1000000 per prefix. Ploughman 100000 notes were not hand-set.

This Number 000001 note is interesting as it is the first Northern Ireland £1 note issued by the Bank of Ireland.

Here is a nice one!
The very first small size Bank of Ireland £1 note printed for the new all-Ireland note design in 1922.
This was the first major change to the format of the bank's notes since 1838.
