John Standish Fforde was Chief Cashier at the Bank of England from 1966 until 1970 when he was succeeded by J B Page. During his time, there were two varieties of the Portrait £5. The first continued the prefix sequence first begun under J Q Hollom his predecessor. These have the catalogue reference B312 in English Paper Money. We are delighted to offer this first of the Fforde £5 notes in Crisp EF and AU/Unc.

J S Fforde Portrait 10/- B311 M80 Very Last Prefix Unc

In 1971 the Bank of England stopped issuing the 10 shilling note when a new 50 pence coin was introduced. As a denomination it has been introduced in 1928 and just 43 years later vanished from circulation. The last Chief Cashier to sign the 10 shilling note denomination was J S Fforde. During that time we know replacement notes were produced with the M prefix. The very last of these replacement notes had the prefix M80 (B311) They are tough to find in any grade and missing from a lot of collections. In Uncirculated finding them is even tougher.
