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.

Many collectors chase notes which are either the very first of their kind or the very last of their kind. Finding the last in banknotes is always difficult. This is rarely revealed before the next variety is introduced. These Portrait Ten Shilling notes are in uncirculated condition and all have the prefix 'Z' meaning they are from the last prefix issued for the Fforde Portrait 10 shilling variety with the catalogue reference B309. If you don’t have one in your collection, now is the time to add it! In crisp, uncirculated condition.

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.
