De La Rue Isaac Newton IBNS World Paper Money Fair 2010
A wonderful Test Note issued by Thomas de La Rue. As their name implies, these were used to test machines handling banknotes and were also a way of promoting the work of the printers. The front has a portrait of Isaac Newton, a medal, and a diagram of the planets. The back has an outline of the spaceship Challenger. The ones we have on offer here were given to all attendees to the IBNS London World Paper Money Fair in 2010 and there is an overprint on the back to denote this. Uncirculated.
