Ulster Bank Notes Pre-1929

Post by DOC » 02 Dec 2017 23:52

Hi Mac,

Nice job on the 1918-1928 pre-partition all-Ireland issues.
I attach scans for two other signature variants on Ulster Bank £1 notes, Robert Russell and James Ussher.

Here are two attractive colour proofs for the £1 notes: a branchless general issue note from ca.1920 and a multi-branch note from ca.1883.

Here are examples of Ulster Bank proof £100 notes, showing an interesting transition from multi-branch to branchless general issue notes. The example from 1904 shows all the branches, the 1918 proof is a transitional design with the branches in the side panels replaced by ‘One Hundred’. The design was modified again in 1920 and was ultimately used as the basis for the 1929 Northern Ireland Issue.

The 1918 transitional proof is interesting. Always nice to see the construction proofs that show the evolution of a design.
