Series B 50 pound note: Scarce in UNC?

Post#1 » Mon Oct 09, 2017 1:53 pm

On eBay, a lot of the £50 Series B notes are advertised as "AU-UNC". Why is it, that when there is a true UNC note, it can fetch as much as 3 times the borderline ones?

Genuine UNC B Series £50 notes are relatively scarce.
1991 is scarcer than 1982.

£50 was quite a high denomination in those days, the notes were seldom seen. not many people could afford tokeep one.
Most of the available examples have been through the banking system, bringing them into the AU region.
