10/- Bradbury T9 First Run (AVF) A1 826460 - Rarer Note

The demand for the rarer Treasury Banknotes is strong. This Bradbury First Run (T9) is a very acceptable note for any GB banknote collector. As a First Run it is quite rare and hard to come by. It has pinholes top left and creases but no tears or repairs. I grade as AVF. I am a member of the IBNS (11009) and grade according to the Society's guidelines. It is on offer at a very competitive price so have a look and think about this as a bank note to enhance your numismatic collection. There are other Bradbury and Warren Fisher notes listed so have a peep into the 'treasure chest' and you will find some great notes at very good prices.

Featured Bank Notes

British banknotes, paper money, has a long history dating back to 1695, the year after the founding of the Bank of England. Over the centuries, banknotes have developed in face value even though for most people until 1914, banknotes were rarely seen or used.

It was after the outbreak of WW1 banknotes were produced with lower values, 10/- and £1. These are ‘Treasury Notes’, signed by the Chief Cashier of the Bank of England, John Bradbury. ‘Bradburys’ and ‘Warren Fisher’ notes are very collectible. Some notes are rare and of great value. Collectors of British banknotes are attracted by their design, rarity, currency history and can be seen as an investment.

For most, it is a hobby focussing upon a particular aspect such as Treasury Notes, White £5s, Replacement notes, Experimental notes, Errors, Low serial numbers, Debdens, First and Last runs. Amongst the British and World banknotes on offer here, I hope you will find banknotes to enhance your collection. Have a look at the Provincial Notes (English) on offer.
