RRR • Irish Replacement notes list

Post by Mac »

Irish Star Replacement Notes


Listed following are all of the known dates of Irish replacement notes, along with recorded prefix brackets. There is a replacement note section on the main web site with illustrations, and there are pictures of most replacement note dates in the View by date sections on the web site.

Always trying to improve the range of known numbers. Occasionally a note which expands the number range turns up.

Anyone with a note outside of the number ranges here is invited to send a scan of the note.

Replacements of those early dates are scarce. Have the number 1 notes for this date, replacement and non-replacement survived? These would be the first issued notes for the B Series.

The Number 1 standard issue note from the first block of each denomination were retained, as far as I know. Replacement number 1 notes went into circulation. The only replacement note number 1 that I know of is £20, EEE 000001. This note was saved by a lucky collector who was in the right place at the right time :P

That was a stroke of luck and well spotted by this collector. Replacement notes from this era often went unnoticed.

I suspect there a typo in the date listing above for the series b replacement date as I found the following series b - £1 BBB 23.03.88 ( I believe you have 23.03.86 listed incorrectly). At a minimum this increases the range of serial #’s noted ever so slightly !!

Thanks for that, which expands the range by a few hundred notes, and for spotting the typo on the date! Corrected to 23.03.88.

That is a significant expansion of the range. 10.10.88 is the least common date for the later BBB replacements.

Thanks for the updates!
I have added them into the list.

That 10.09.92 BBB is a decent example of a rare note, very high serial number.
