Banknote news


Our other GB - Banknotes  

Work is in the process of amending some of our 

grading as we have in the past used EF+ for 

what many dealers, auction houses, etc. call UNC.

This is explained on the 

frontpage of our 'GB banknotes'

and as to how far I have got with these alterations.


A new Banknote Grading page  

has been added to show examples of

 my banknote grades - with picture examples.


1914 - 18 Bradbury 10 Shilling banknotes

and 1914 - 18 Bradbury 1 banknotes.

These have now been separated and 

completely re-graded with scans of all notes.


1919 - 28 Fisher 10 Shilling banknotes

and 1919 - 28 Fisher 1

banknotes are re-graded and scanned


The "Bank of England" banknotes:

1928 Mahon; 1930 Catterns1934 - 1950 Peppiatt

are now up to date with any new items added.

With pictures for the Mahon & Catterns banknotes.

Our stock of Peppiatt banknotes is so large

that we don't have the time to scan each banknote !

will be be dealt with at a future date.

After the UK silver coins have been added

A large collection of 

British: Copper & Bronze coins -

Pennies, Halfpennies, Farthings & fractional coins

Followed by possibly either 

MORE G.B. banknotes

There is still a long way to go but

Hopefully, one day ALL world countries are to be added -

which will include both coins and banknotes.
