1928 Lavery notes

Post by billyf1 » 24 Oct 2019 08:10

I’m not sure this warrants a whole topic by itself, but here is a £5 note from 1928.

I don’t see them often at all, myself.

If you have any other examples of these early date notes, I’d love to see them.

Nice note. It appears to be part of a short run. Here is the previous number !

That's brilliant! Does that note have pinholes too (not that it would bother anyone too much - but would be interesting if they were stored together for some time). Interesting and funny that they're in sequence!

Sold to me by a chap in Spain.

Not sure about the pinholes as I don't own the note :)

The first date, 10.9.28, is also sought after by collectors.
Difficult to obtain in high grade. The example attached is interesting as it bears the first prefix, T/01.

There is a small run in sequence of the 23.10.28 fivers with the two pin holes.
I have one in my own set, and a scan of at least one other example. I'll dig out pics of both and post them.
They are nice examples of the note, among the best I have seen for the date.

There is also a small sequential run of 10.9.28 fivers in AU-UNC condition, without pin holes. At least one of them has been pressed (can't imagine why some cretin would press an AU grade note), and another example which has mulberry serials is a fresh original note.

Here are two of the 10.9.28 notes.
T04 009005 has been washed and ironed.
T04 009001 is probably ok as its corners appear to be slightly grubby.

I'll have to look for the scans of the other notes.

£5 note 23.10.28, number 067909. this note was in a US auction in 2007.
It is (or was then) a fresh original example.

That looks like a really nice fresh note.

Interesting to hear that you have observed a 1928 £5 with mulberry serials. That is an unusual and rare note !

This looks like the note that I have. I.e. the very same one. The links to the 2007 auction would hardly exist today?
Thanks!

Heh, I didn't notice that it was your one!
It was likely in Heritage Auctions or Lynn Knight back in 2007.
