Here is a blank note, with a field for the denomination to be added by hand.
Not sure where this would fit in to the series.

A number of different partnerships based in Cork used the name ‘Cork Bank’. The partnerships of Thomas Roberts & Co. and Stephen Roche & Co. appear to be independent and unrelated. However, Thomas Roberts & Co. became Walter Roberts & Co. and eventually Charles Henry Leslie & Co. Details of the notes issued by these related Cork-based banks are given under Cork Bank Leslie’s.
