L K O'Brien £1 Portrait B281 A Prefix GEF/Unc

It was in 1960 when L K O’Brien was Chief Cashier that the Bank of England decided to issue notes with the portrait of the reigning monarch Elizabeth II. This was quite a departure because until that point the only illustration on Bank of England notes was of Britannia. Britannia was still featured but this time in a seal which appeared on the back of the notes. The portrait of the young Queen Elizabeth II appeared on the front. There were two regular varieties of the O’Brien Portrait £1 note with the catalogue references of B281 and B282. Here we offer the B281 £1 Note with the prefix A- in Uncirculated condition.

P S Beale £1 Britannia B268 Fine

PS Beale was Chief Cashier from 1949 until 1954. During that period only 3 denominations were issued – the 10 shillings, £1 and £5. The £1 note signed by Beale followed the Britannia design. A vignette of a seated Britannia appears on the front (B268) On the back, running along to top of the note is a view of the façade of The Bank of England Headquarters in Threadneedle Street. Below set in a bed of acanthus leaves we find the Pistrucci reverse of the gold sovereign- the £1 equivalent at the time. We offer the Beale Britannia £1 note here in Fine condition.
