£1 Fforde B308 Replacement (AUNC) N07M 111364

This Replacement note is a good one to expand the collection. It is one of the rarer ones and although, not a First or Last Run, it is a quality note and quite rare in this grade. It is on offer at a very decent price. I am listing a wide selection of notes during the coming days so have an eye open to the new arrivals. There will be some outstanding Replacements as well as First and Lasts. Please contact me if you have notes to value, to sell or to discuss. Contact me directly by phone or by email. Even if it is a single note you have found I will always do my best to advise. Every person who phones me or makes contact by email will receive the same service. It is always a pleasure to help and advise. The website has a great selection of notes and there are some great banknotes on the way as well, so keep looking at the 'Recently Added' on the Home Page.

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 also as an investment.

For most, it is an interest, focussing upon a particular area such as Treasury Notes, White Banknotes, 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 also at the Provincial Notes on offer.
