SCWPM Catalog: B402 / P-390b. Grade: WBG 65 TOP Gem Unc. This is a rare first prefix note and very seldom offered.
There was no official information regarding first prefixes and no presentation packs were prepared. The traditional facility at the Banks Head Quarters in Threadneedle street for collectors to obtain banknotes on the first day of issue was withdrawn and a press notice merely stated that All banknotes will be issued in the normal way through the day-to-day distribution network operated by the Bank and commercial cash handlers. It would have taken a good deal of time for collectors to narrow down what the first prefix was for this series by which time all would have entered into general circulation already. These notes are very seldom seen let alone offered for sale. I also have never seen consecutive notes.This item is in the category "Coins & Paper Money\Paper Money: World\Europe\UK (Great Britain)".
