The 10 shilling note disappeared from our pockets in 1971. The first Bank of England Ten Shilling notes appeared in 1928 but in 1971 were eventually replaced with a 50 pence coin. These last 10 shillings were signed by J S Fforde as Chief Cashier. This last issue also included replacement notes, which, as their name implies, were used to ‘replace’ regular notes damaged in production. (B311) These all have the prefix M. Here we offer Crisp Uncirculated Last Replacement 10/- notes with Fforde’s signature and the M Prefix.
LK O’Brien was the last Chief Cashier to sign the Britannia 10 shillings. It was during his term that the Bank replaced the Britannia design with notes featuring the Queen’s Portrait. (B271) O’Brien Britannia Ten shillings available in Uncirculated.
