• As there is only one digit (up) in the difference, was this a misprint in the book which should have read 61C 099955 OR does this note extend the range for the date 24/8/1950, by 100?

• Given that 99955 is VERY CLOSE to 99999/100000 is it safe to say that printing probably went up to 61C 099999 OR 61C 100000 ?


Serial Number Range (24.8.50) now reads:
57C 071534 - 61C 099955 (428,422 Issued) 

Any sightings above this ==> 61C 100000

It would indeed be nice to get 61C 100000!

Each prefix went up to 100000, which was handset as the machines only went up to 099999 - the first 0 must have been fixed.
The Central Bank of Ireland confirmed that the 100000 numbers were handset.
Thus, 61C 100000 was the highest number of prefix 61C.

From type 7 onwards 10 Shilling, £1, £5 notes were numbered up to 1000000, which was also handset.
