There are a few contemporary forgeries of these early Ulster £1 notes in private hands. They seem to be the only examples of the design available to collectors.

Proof notes also provide collectors with examples of the single branch designs although these notes are also very scarce. Here is an example of a 30 Shillings issued note, from the Downpatrick Branch, which appeared on the net some time ago. The note most likely resides in the Bank’s archives or in a museum.

A nice example of an early note there.
I suppose it is possible that there are a few examples of notes of this era in private collections that we may see at some stage.

Other cancelled early notes are known in private hands - a few cancelled Bank of Ireland notes (£5, £20) from 1915-1921 turned up in Whyte's a few years ago.

Here is an example of an Ulster Banking Company single branch, 35 Shillings note. This proof note for the Ballymoney Branch dates from the period 1836-1845.

The Ulster Bank also issued £2 notes as part of the First Issue. The denomination was discontinued in 1845. An example issued by the Cootehill Branch is attached.
