In 1993 the Bank of England celebrated the 200th Anniversary of the issue of the first £5 note. At the same time, the Bank of England was changing over from printing their notes from a web fed roll to smaller individual sheets. 25 years ago the Bank issued 1500 uncut sheets of 3 of each type of the £5 note. We are offering Uncut sheets of the £5 note printed by the Sheet Fed Process. (C108) The sheetfed notes have the first of the new prefix. In fact, we have seen the AC01 Prefix sell for £110 on its own. Another dealer is selling this Uncut Sheet of 3 for £200 – our price is just £110. Remember only 1500 sheets were ever issued!
Issued 27 years ago, these £10 notes are in Crisp Uncirculated condition (B369) They bear the signature of Graham Kentfield as Chief Cashier, a post he held until 1999. Printed on sheetfed presses, the front has a mature portrait of Queen Elizabeth II with a vignette of Britannia and a diamond-shaped symbol to assist the partially sighted. The back features a portrait of Charles Dickens and a scene from the cricket match at Dingley Dell from his novel Pickwick Papers. Sold in Crisp Uncirculated.
