Blue Pink £1 Note - First Produced (GEF/uncirculated 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.

Bank of England Presentation Set C108 G E A Kentfield Sheetlet £5 X 3 Sheet AC01-3 Unc

In 1993 the Bank of England celebrated the 200th Anniversary of the issue of the first £5 note. At the same time, the Bank of England was changing over from printing their notes from a web fed roll to smaller individual sheets. 25 years ago the Bank issued 1500 uncut sheets of 3 of each type of the £5 note. This issue we offer Uncut sheets of the £5 note printed by the Sheet Fed Process. (C108) The sheet fed notes have the first of the new prefix. In fact I have seen the AC01 Prefix sell for £110 on its own. Another dealer is selling this Uncut Sheet of 3 for £200 – our price is just £110. Remember only 1500 sheets were ever issued!
