Treasury Banknotes: Bradbury and Warren Fisher

The Treasury banknotes are always great additions to the collection. The quality of these notes varies from ‘rags’ to superb high grades. Have a browse of my Treasury notes where there is a wide selection of notes and prices.

England v Scotland in the Euros – Bannockburn 1314!

One of the greatest battles in Britain was at Bannockburn in 1314. The date and history is known to all Scots. Robert the Bruce triumphed – say no more. Wembley is a long way from Bannockburn but the Scottish heart longs for a victory on Friday evening. If Scotland lose then we have the consolation… Read more »

Somerset £10 Notes Coming Soon

I have around twenty Somerset £10 notes coming soon. all are stated to be AUNC. They will be listed at very competitive prices so keep your eyes open for them…the ‘Recently Added’ feature on the Home Page is a good port of call for the latest arrivals.

Scotland, Euros 2020 and British Banknotes

Scotland are in the Euros, the first major competition for many years. I still remember the hope when Ally McCleod was the National Team manger, but the hope foundered on the shores of disappointments. Perhaps this year we can make progress to the last sixteen. Hope still blooms. Perhaps it’s time to look at the… Read more »

Value My Banknotes. Grade my Banknotes

I took delivery of notes won at auction. The Auction House is well-known amongst Banknote Collectors. Two single UNC notes are shy of the grading.

10/- Warren Fisher T33 – Uncirculated

I may be buying a UNC T33 note tomorrow. I have been offered the note and all depends on the grade. The images look good but to have it to hand will confirm the grading. If UNC it will be a fantastic Treasury banknote.

A Superb Collection of High Grades: Firsts, Lasts, Replacements

I have bought a collection of outstanding quality. There is a B271 Last Run (Y25X) in AUNC grade, a UNC B313 Replacement Note and some superb Lowther and Bailey Column Sorts, Replacements and First Runs. Keep your eyes peeled for some really special new additions this coming weekend.

St Johnstone FC, Cups and Banknotes

St Johnstone have done the double, winning both Cup competitions in Scotland this year. For all Saints supporters in Perth and in the ‘Diaspora’ it is a time of great joy. Buying a rare UNC banknote does not compare….maybe it does!

St Johnstone FC and the Scottish Cup

On Saturday afternoon, St Johnstone take on Hibs in the Scottish Cup Final. St Johnstone won the Cup for the first times several years ago. They won the League Cup this year and now have the chance to make it a double. For a small club, we punch above our weight and have done so… Read more »

RBS £100 and £50 Notes Coming Soon

I have a collection of RBS notes coming tomorrow. The grades of the notes are not known but I think most will be EF to AUNC. They will be priced keenly so that they will be offered way below the ‘Book Price’. For the Scottish notes collector, it is something to note. The selling price… Read more »
