I note the serial number is also well above 100000, close to the end of N/A.

The Provincial Bank experimented with new designs in 1946, introducing a lattice pattern to the previous design. These notes are only known in proof form with the Kennedy signature. Denominations of £1, £5 and £10 have been observed. Examples of the £1 and £10 denominations are attached.

Provincial Bank £5 notes with the lattice design are more obtainable than the £1 notes and four dates are known between 1948 and 1952. The 1948 note has a fractional N/B prefix while the later dates have an in-line NB prefix. The reverse design is similar to that of notes issued between 1935 and 1946.

Interesting that the £1 notes are scarcer than the £5.

The Provincial Bank significantly changed its banknote design with a new issue released in 1954. The front now features a cameo of a female head while the reverse depicts the Bank’s Head Office in Belfast. All notes bear the signature of N. J. Shaw and originally had the printer’s imprint of Waterlow & Sons changing to De La Rue & Co Ltd after the takeover of Waterlow’s in 1961.

The 1954 £1 notes are scarce particularly in nice condition.

The Provincial Bank of Ireland also issued the £5 denomination in 1954 with signature of N. J. Shaw. These notes with the Shaw signature and Waterlow printer’s imprint are not as scare as the £1 notes as other dates were issued during the 1950’s.
