The notes of this Bank are attractively designed. Here is an unissued 1.5 Guinea note from the early 1800's.

That is a nice note, and in good grade too.
Another wierd denomination. I guess usage determined what denominations were printed.

Two very similar yet completely different designs for 25 Shilling notes which are close together in date of issue.

Kind of odd they'd change the design so completely. Maybe they had problems with forgeries.
Two nicely designed notes tho.
