Availability: In stock
SKU: BSR4610

In 1972, the Royal Bank of Scotland introduced a new design for the £1 note. It was green with the crest of the bank on the front and a view of Edinburgh Castle on the back (P336) This design lasted until 1982 when new regulations meant the bank changed it’s title from Royal Bank of Scotland Limited to Royal Bank of Scotland plc. (see BSR6380)
We recently bought an accumulation of Royal Bank £1 notes dated between 1972 and 1981 with the Limited title and between 1982 -1986 with the plc title.

This is the earlier of the two types as RBS Limited. All our notes are in Crisp Uncirculated.

Blue Pink £1 Note - First Produced (very fine 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.
