L K O'Brien £1 Portrait B281 A Prefix GEF/Unc
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 B281 £1 Note with the prefix A- in Uncirculated condition.
