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.
