1805 One Guinea: Dumfries Commercial Bank No. 13/194 (Fair) Reference DF2


This is a note from one of the ‘Lost Banks of Scotland’.

The bank was founded in 1804. It failed in 1808 and paid 10/- in the pound to its creditors.
The founder, James Gracie was a friend of Rabbie Burns, the Scottish Bard and it was on the back of a One Guinea note that Burns wrote his short poem, ‘Lines Written on a Banknote’. If only it was this note the lines were written.
This is a very competitive price….I see similar notes being offered at over £200! Too much by a mile.
