When the Bank of England went over from printing from a giant roll of paper, known as ‘web fed’ to printing on individual sheets, they decided to mark this event. They did this by issuing just 1,500 uncut sheets of three notes in a special folder. All three notes have the same serial number, but with different prefixes. All three notes will be in the last 1500 ever printed on the web press.
These £5 notes are of course paper which, considering that we have now gone over to plastic, makes them even more interesting and exciting. After all how many uncut sheets of Bank of England notes have you ever seen?
They are the last banknotes printed in this method, they are in the last 1500 printed that way, they all have the same serial number, they are printed on paper and they come in a Bank of England presentation wallet.
We have seen this set sold two ways, as it is presented at some rather high prices and cut up and each note sold individually, again for quite a high price.

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.

Crisp AUncirculated examples of the Hollom Replacement Portrait £1 with the catalogue reference B290. All replacement notes are scarce because they were issued in much smaller numbers. Their purpose was, as their name implies, to replace notes damaged in production. They were given a special prefix to identify them. In the case of the Portrait series, this included the letter M. Our Hollom Replacement Portrait £1 notes have the prefix –M. They are AUncirculated. Limited availability
