Interesting Lavery Errors

Post#1 » Tue May 08, 2018 2:53 pm

Occasionally, minor errors are noticed on old notes that have already been in the collector pool for a while. I have come across two such notes recently, with minor print errors on them.

Below is a war code 10 Shilling note with a small portion of the face printing on the reverse (top left edge), caused by the previous note being folded whilst being printed. This left some ink residue on the bed of the printing press which was then picked up by the next note (this one pictured) resulting in some of the face printing on the reverse of the note, illustrated in the zoom image.

Here is an interesting serial number error on a Lady Lavery £10 note. Errors of this type appear to be rare.

Here's an interesting error £1 note that turned up recently in an auction.
It is curious in that part of the left serial number is missing (otherwise printed normally), and the entire date and right hand serial number is missing. Possibly it was folded when being numbered. The pic is not good enough to see if there is a fold on the note.

That is a intriguing error and difficult to explain. It would be interesting to see if any other notes with serial number close to this one turn up. The date should be 17.5.74 and the number appears to be 40K 88358?

Notes of this type have been seen without serial numbers but these are probably not errors but unissued remainders. Example attached.

Well that's the strange thing, there didn't seem to be one...

I think I might have worked this one out.

The error would occur if the banknote on top of this one had a fold on it, so it would end up with part of its left serial number missing, and this note would pick up the missing part of the number.
If both sheets were ejected together, then this one would be left as it appears now with part of a number only.

That makes perfect sense. I will keep a look out for notes of the same prefix close in serial number to this one !

Here is another £10 note missmatched serial number error, quite close to the one above. There are other examples known from this run of notes also.

Thanks to the board member who emailed this one in :)

Wow, I have not seen such an extreme example of misplacement on a Lady Lavery note before !

There are some nice errors here. I figure Lavery errors are scarcer than later Series, as there were far fewer notes being printed then. I like the war code error note, it has probably been in many collections before being noticed as an error.
