I hadn't heard of the Revenue Commissioners producing currency!

But then why not put them into circulation!

Maybe they didn’t need them in the end and kept them in case of another emergency. Something stopped them issuing them. If they had been issued at the time or even for a few years afterwards they would have hardly been noticed.

Maybe stored offsite in as some sort of emergency contingency plan in case something happened to their main storage area or the couldn’t get supplies and numbered differently if that site was compromised.

That is what they did with them in the end, when they ran short of £1 notes in 1974!
