The 10 shilling note disappeared from our pockets in 1971. The first Bank of England Ten
Shilling notes appeared in 1928 but in 1971 were eventually replaced with a 50 pence
coin. These last 10 shillings were signed by J S Fforde as Chief Cashier.
This last issue also included replacement notes, which, as their name implies,were used to
‘replace’ regular notes damaged in production. (B311) These all have the prefix M.
