Banknote collectors may focus on the more modern notes, from Bradbury onwards but all of us need to give a nod to the past. Englsih Banking history was so vibrant during the late 18th and 19th Centuries. So many banks sprang up, developed, died, were aborbed into larger banks and the banknotes produced have become very collectible and popular. I think banknote collections benefit from at least one or two of these Provincial Notes. I have a rather neat little collection on offer.
