Royal Bank Scotland Limited £5 1978 P337a Unc

We are delighted to offer Crisp Uncirculated examples of the Royal Bank of Scotland Limited £5 notes dated May 1978.(P337a) This was just a few years before all UK banks were obliged to change their titles and become Public Limited Companies. This meant the Royal Bank had to remove the word Limited in its title and replace it with the letters plc. These Royal Bank Limited £5 notes are genuinely scarce in Crisp Uncirculated. The crest of the Bank is on the front and a view of Culzean Castle is on the back. Burke signs as Managing Director. We offer these wonderful notes, but supply is quite limited so reservations recommended.

Scottish Polymer £10 X 3 Diff Replacements (P131/229Q & 371) Unc

All three issuing banks in Scotland have issued polymer £10 notes in the last couple of years. Because notes are occasionally damaged in production there has also been a need to produce replacement notes to make up packs prior to issue. In Scotland, these replacement notes are currently identified by the presence of ZZ in the prefix. These replacement notes are much scarcer than the regular issue and we have always had to rely on beady eyed collectors to rescue them from circulation. These replacement notes are found here and there and in dribs and drabs so we are delighted to be able to offer a set of 3 Uncirculated examples of the Replacement £10 one from each of the issuing Scottish Banks – that is the Bank of Scotland, Clydesdale Bank and the Royal Bank of Scotland. It was quite a task to get this offering together and availability is very limited.
