It was in 1960 when L K O’Brien was Chief Cashier that the Bank of England decided to issue notes with the portrait of the reigning monarch Elizabeth II. This was quite a departure because until that point the only illustration on Bank of England notes was of Britannia. Britannia was still featured but this time in a seal which appeared on the back of the notes. The portrait of the young Queen Elizabeth II appeared on the front There were two regular varieties of the O’Brien Portrait £1 note with the catalogue references of B281 and B282. Here we offer the first £1 note with the B282 prefix –A in Uncircualted condition

These last 10 shillings were signed by J S Fforde as Chief Cashier. This last issue also included replacement notes, which, as their name implies, were used to ‘replace’ regular notes damaged in production. (B311) These all have the prefix M. Here we offer Crisp Uncirculated Last Replacement 10/- notes with Fforde’s signature and the M Prefix.
