I rekon around $1,500. Used to be higher for a Northern, even with ink marks on it.
Plowmans have been having a hard time lately, with prices going low. Lots of notes in auctions.

The Ploughman notes have suffered a bit on price recently but The Northern notes being rare are still sought after. Here is a link to the irishpapermoney site which provides a price guide.

The note looks to be fine or better but the ink marks would have some impact on the value.

Curiously, Northern £1 notes seem to be a bit scarcer than £5 notes currently, with a greater number of £5 notes appearing in auctions in the recent past, mainly in Heritage and Spink, London.
I figure the bank will likely always be the rarest of the Plowman issues.

Original pic seems to have died.
There are 2 Northern £1 notes and 1 £5 up in the DNW sale in London tomorrow. I guess we will get to see what they are worth then.
One of the £1 notes is very nice.

I see that the higher grade Northern 1931 £1 did well at £3,000 hammer price. The lower grade note although decent did not sell and neither did the 1929 Knox £5. These are rare notes in nice grade but my own view is that the starting prices were just a little too high to get the ball rolling. I think the same applies for the Ploughman specimens that also failed to sell.
