C Series £20 Contemporary Forgeries

Post by DOC »

Here is an interesting O’Connell £20 contemporary forgery which appeared on eBay recently. The note is clearly marked as a forgery and has an unknown date for this signature combination. A genuine example bearing the first date for this signature combination is attached for comparison.

Some forgeries I have seen of B Series and C Series notes display non-existent dates. This made them easy to spot by the authorities.
The prefix CFB on the forgery above was used on notes dated 30.11.95.
