The Black Sheep Company, set up by Richard Williams issued ‘ notes’ in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He quickly ran into trouble with the Treasury in London when they realised the Welsh text he used on the notes included the title Chief Treasury in Wales. He changed the title to the Welsh Black Sheep Company but eventually was forced to Overstamp the notes Cancelled by the Treasury in London. We can now offer notes issued in the early 1970s with illustrations of four different Welsh Castles. Laugherne Castle on the 10 swllt, Conway Castle on the £1, Harlech Castle on the £5 and Cardiff Castle on the £10. In addition to William's signature, each note has Stamp Duty paid and illustrations of a red dragon and black sheep. Available separately or save almost HALF when you buy all four.

Blue Pink £1 Note - First Produced (very fine condition)

During World War 2, the Bank of England decided to change the colour of the £1 note. Instead of green, they were printed in blue and pink and for the first time ever included an embedded metal security thread as extra security against counterfeiters.(B249) They bear the signature of K O Peppiatt. Until several years ago it was always believed the first prefixes printed were produced at the St Luke’s Printing Works in London before the bank moved its operations to Overton in Hampshire for the duration of the war. They were given their own catalogue number. The current catalogue no longer makes this distinction. We can however now offer the Blue Pink £1 notes with the prefixes which were the first of each group produced namely A-D, A-E and A-H which used to be referred to as the St Luke’s issues. Available in 4 grades to meet every pocket.
