G E A Kentfield Historical £5 B364 Unc

When the Bank of England launched a new series of banknotes in the 1990s, it was planned that there would be a small crown in the top right-hand corner of all values on the front. This ended up causing problems with members of the public complaining that it was difficult to distinguish between denominations. The bank decided to ‘enhance’ the design. On the £5 note, the crown was retained but the £5 symbol was made very dark. On all other denominations, the crown was replaced with the denomination both in the top right corner on the front and additionally on the back. The first Chief Cashier to see these changes was G E A Kentfield. Here we offer Uncirculated examples of the ‘Enhanced’ Kentfield £5. (B364)

We are delighted to be able to offer choice examples of the first variety with the reference B346. This was the issue with the least number of notes printed, maybe because the prefixes were a continuation from those issued with J B Page’s signature. The front has a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II in State Robes while the back honours Florence Nightingale. A vignette of her work in Scutari during the Crimea War also appears.
