How much is a ten shilling note worth?

Post by Mac »

Lady Lavery Irish Ten Shilling Note Value.

Valuations are in Euro

Irish ten shilling notes were one of the main notes in circulation of the Lady Lavery Series of banknotes. They are both very common, and highly collectible. Their appeal goes well beyond banknote collectors and are for many a nice keepsake of the old predecimal currency.

As such, almost all examples of Irish ten bob notes would be worth more than their redeemable face value of 63 Euro Cent. Any year of a 10 shilling note of a particular year would generally be worth more than the same year of a £1 note in similar condition.

The value of an old banknote depends a lot on its condition, and also on its age.

Relative rarity is indicated by the letter R after the type name, or the Type. Five Rs is the rarest.
