DNW Auction of Paper Money
Thursday 26 August 2021. British, Irish and World Banknotes


This auction continues DNW’s trend of offering a very good selection of Irish notes.

The sale has 72 Lots of Irish notes, and includes some very seldom seen rarities.

Some of the highlights.
There is a good range of notes from the Joint Stock banks, with some very rarely seen items, starting with two exceptional items from Bank of Ireland.
Lot 220, Bank of Ireland, £5, 27 January 1919. Est £8,000. The green branch fiver! There are three examples of this note recorded, with this one being the best grade by far. First seen in a dealer’s list in 1982, then in DNW around ten years ago.
Lot 221, Bank of Ireland, £1, 10 April 1922, serial number 10A 000002, Hinton signature. Est, £1,600. this is one of two notes retained by Hinton. Last seen in Whytes a few years ago.
Lot 235, Belfast Banking Company Limited, proof £1, ND (1908-10) - a rare example of a later Belfast note in proof form, seldom seen. Est £240. A nice opportunity to obtain a high grade example of a Belfast Bank note, issued notes seldom turn up in VF or better.
Lot 239, National Bank Limited, £1, 1 August 1919 in EF grade. This is the only known example of a small size National note in high grade. It is by far the nicest example known, and a rare note by type. Est £2,600.
Lot 240, National Bank Limited, £5, 5 October 1925 in VF grade. An unusually nice grade example of a National fiver. Usually these notes grade around VG to fine. Est £2,600.
Lot 254, Provincial Bank of Ireland Ltd, cancelled £1, 1 January 1918. An interesting banknote, it is the last date for the large size Provincial £1 notes. Prefix V was reduced in size. Est £100.
Lot 255, Provincial Bank of Ireland Ltd, £3, 3 May 1905, serial number 10069. There are four of these blue £3 notes known, one is in the British Museum (grade unknown), and a second example is cut and rejoined. This example is the best of the three available to collectors. Est £4,000. Last seen in Whytes around 20 years ago.
Lot 259, Provincial Bank of Ireland Ltd, £10, 10 November 1944, serial number N73218. GVF. Examples of this note are seldom sen in nice grade, with most struggling to reach VF. This note is a nice original. Est £150 - it will likely do better than that.
Lot 264, Ulster Bank Limited, £1, 1 December 1924, serial number 105506, manuscript Reid signature. A solid VF Est £2,600. For many years the £5 note of this type were only know in proof form. Then two issued notes turned up, possibly from the same source. A very rare issue.




There are three Ploughman notes, Lot 268, Northern Bank £10, Lot 269, Royal Bank £1, and Lot 270, Ulster Bank £1.
Lot 268, Currency Commission, Northern Bank Ltd, £10, 6 May 1929, serial number 01 0T 007335.
This is one of the mid-range examples of the Northern tenner. Currently there are seven examples known of the note. Est £12,000. This note was last sold in Whytes around 15 years ago.
Lot 270, Currency Commission, Ulster Bank, £1, 24 August 1932. A decent example of an Ulster pound. Est £300 - it will do better than that.


The Legal Tender Notes section starts with some pre-production proofs of the 1938 Currency Commission Ireland notes:
Lot 271, 272, 274 are 10 Shilling, £5, and £10 respectively.
Lot 275, Central Bank of Ireland, 10 Shillings, 12 December 1945, serial number O1J 013341. One of only two examples known of this rare key date, the lower grade example. Fine. Est £1,000.

Lot 288 Central Bank of Ireland, C Series replacement £100, 1996, KKK 000009, Est £1,000
Standard issue C Series notes of the first prefix with numbers below 000010 are seldom offered, as they tended to be retained. All replacement notes went into circulation.



Mention has to be made of Lot 503.
Oriental Bank Corporation, Hong Kong, $5, 1 June 1860, serial number 20465. This is the earliest known fully issued banknote of any denomination for Hong Kong. Est £30,000-£50,000.
