Merlyn Lowther Historical £10 Darwin B388 AA01 3 X The Unc

When this Lowther £10 note was issued in November 2000, it took a bit of time before it was realised there was a mistake in the wording of the Copyright details around the watermark area. Somehow an extra THE had slipped in. So many had been printed before the error was noticed that is now regarded as a variety (B388) Eventually the error was corrected. We are delighted to be able to offer some of the first notes all with the prefix AA01. Uncirculated and always an important note!

The Bank of England issued the £10 note with Charles Darwin on the back in November 2000 while Merlyn Lowther was Chief Cashier. The first notes which rolled off the presses had an error in the Copyright panel with an extra ‘The’ appearing in the inscription. So many millions were printed before the bank realised its mistake and corrected the error that this is now regarded as a separate variety. We can offer Crisp Uncirculated versions of the Corrected Lowther Darwin £10. (B390) They are distinguished from the previous issue by the removal of the extra word ‘The’ in the copyright legend. These paper £10 notes, disappeared from circulation are now over 17 years old and increasingly difficult to find in high grade. Crisp Uncirculated Lowther Corrected £10 note.
