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.
