In the 19th century local banks proliferated, financed by local citizens. Many went bust but some, like the Stockton on Tees Bank, merged with larger banks to survive. The Stockton on Tees Bank was taken over by the precursors of the Barclays Bank we know today. As part of the process, Barclays honoured the note issue and to show that this had been done, the signature panel was cut out. As every time a note was issued it was required for stamp duty to be paid, these notes were circulated extensively to avoid new duty being paid. The vast bulk of the Stockton on Tees notes that we see are very well circulated but we recently bought a group which were cancelled the usual way but are in much much higher grade. Here we present the Stockton on Tees £5 note dated in the 1880’s-90’s in circulated condition.

Scotland_Christmas_Staffa_1981_stamp

Scotland, £8 Christmas Staffa (The Angel), 1981

We have found this wonderful Staffa Gold, just in time for Christmas. Staffa is one of the Scottish islands and it issues its own stamps. This is an £8.00 stamp issued in 22ct gold foil in 1981. It features an Angel in the sky on this oversized large gold foil stamp. Now, these stamps are issued for local posting only, but it comes in a red gold embossed folder with a green inner. What could be more appropriate for Christmas than a gold foil Angel stamp in a red and green presentation folder? This stamp is now 35 years old. The face value was £8.00, the presentation folder cost a bunch and then there is the gold foil. So we think our price of just £14.50 is very reasonable and what a fantastic Christmas gift it would make for a collector or a youngster.

Picture of India, George VI 1942 1/2 Anna BU

India, George VI 1942 1/2 Anna BU

India issued coins with the portraits of British Monarchs from the reign of King William IV to King George VI. After that India became Independent and no Royals were on their coins from then on in. At the end of King George VI’s reign they issued a square ½ Anna in nickel-brass in 1942 without dots on either side of the Country *India* for the Bombay Mint. From 1942-1945 they issued the coin with the dots either side of India. From 1946-47 they issued this coin in copper-nickel. So the 1942 dots is an important type of coin. The mintage is just under 8 million, but compared to the other dates, it is minuscule. The lowest other dates are between 159 and 437 million! That makes 1942 a very low mintage, very important type coin. We bought a small group of 1942 no dots ½ Anna of 1942 and they are in Choice Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The catalogue only prices them up to Uncirculated condition. We don’t know how good these coins are in India, because we could not find any for sale there… We think these are fantastic coins and who knows what they are really worth. Low mintage, one-year type coin, top condition, King George VI, and a very popular Indian coin. We have guessed at the price, which if will be raised substantially if we are wrong... Get them while you can!
