Were Fivers That Size?

A British £5 note has undergone lots of changes over the years. Nowadays, we are all familiar with the polymer £5 that fits easily into the wallet, purse and pocket.I think many people are taken by suprise when they see a white fiver (£5 note). White £5 notes were legal tender till 1961. Nowadays, a good quality UNC ”fiver’ can attract a price of several hundred pouns but there are ‘bargains’ to be found in lesser gradings. This Beale £5 note is graded VF and is on sale at a price of arund £100. Interesting serial number……good note to begin a collection.
