£20 Fforde Replacement B319 (GEF) M01 007556 - Low Serial Numer

This is a rarer English banknote, the Fforde B319 Replacement note with a low serial number. Only around half a million were printed and the prefix is M01, so it is a short series and nowadays, quite hard to come by. This is a welcome addition to the English bank note collection. It is on offer at a very competitive price. Replacement notes are always in demand but this B319 is very rare and a great addition to any collection. Have a peek at this and the other notes on offer. Always feel free to contact me should there be any queries or questions you want to raise.

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.
