£5 Mahon B215f and £5 Catterns B228e Liverpool and Manchester Branch Banknotes

Banknote dealers will try to sell notes at the highest possible prices. These two white British Banknotes are rare Branch notes and very sought after indeed.. Dealers offer these at very high prices. I try to offer more competitive and affordable prices. White notes are always popular and collectible but the Branch notes have an added cachet and rarity that make them the kind of British bank note to grace any collection not only to add value, but quality as well. I have a Peppiatt (Hull) B241c also in stock with a Harvey B209ad, (Leeds)another superb branch note as well.

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.

I am about to take possession of these two banknotes – both rare Branch notes, B228e and B215f. I hope to list them during the coming days…great notes for the GB banknote seller. Good value. As a banknote seller (banknote dealer?) there are some notes that are utterly outstanding. These two tick the boxes.
