National Bank Second Northern Ireland Issue

Completely redesigned notes for second Northern Ireland Issue

The National Bank was unusual among the issuing banks in Northern Ireland in that it changed the designs of its Northern Ireland issue to a completely new design relatively early when it replaced its Series E First Northern Ireland Issue with a new Series F in 1937. This was to be the National Bank's final note issue as the bank was taken over by the Bank of Ireland in 1966.
