D H F Somerset served as Chief Cashier at the Bank of England from 1980-1988. During that time there were 4 different £10 notes issued. We are delighted to be able to offer choice examples of the first variety with the reference B346. This was the issue with the least number of notes printed, maybe because the prefixes were a continuation from those issued with J B Page’s signature.
