Our GB - Banknotes  

Work is in the process of amending some of our 

grading as we have in the past used EF+ for 

what many dealers, auction houses, etc. call UNC.

This is explained on the 

frontpage of our 'GB banknotes'

and as to how far I have got with these alterations.


A new Banknote Grading page  

has been added to show examples of

 my banknote grades - with picture examples.


Work is complete on our "Treasury"

selection of

1914 Bradbury 10 Shilling banknotes

and 1914 Bradbury 1 banknotes.

These have now been separated and 

completely re-graded with scans of all notes.


At present, I regret but I do not have the 

time to add, price or scan all of the 

Fisher 10 Shilling & 1 banknotes.

However, I have left details of some of

the "Fisher" banknotes I have available

with just  an approximate grade

but unfortunately without prices.

If there is any banknote with the "Fisher"

signature that you are interested in

let me know and 

I'll try and make time to scan, 

re-grade and price the note for you !


The "Bank of England" banknotes:

1928 Mahon; 1930 Catterns1934 - 1950 Peppiatt

are now up to date with any new items added.

With pictures for the Mahon & Catterns banknotes.

Our stock of Peppiatt banknotes is so large

that we don't have the time to scan each banknote !


 Beale / O'Brien / Hollom / Fforde /Page

and later GB banknotes signatures

will be be dealt with at a future date.


Some of our Foreign CoinS 

from "Afganistan" to "Canada"

have been added (Alphabetically).

But we have many more countries to add !

From Canadian Provinces & Token to Zimbabwe 


Our Extras - page

other countries, etc.

  "Extras" selection !


Foreign Banknotes: 

The Scottish notes are up to date.

as are most of our Gibraltar, Guernsey, 

Isle of Man,  Ireland (Rep.), Ireland (Northern)

& Jersey banknotes also.


After the UK silver coins have been added

A large collection of 

British: Copper & Bronze coins -

Pennies, Halfpennies, Farthings & fractional coins

 will be added. 

Followed by possibly either 

MORE G.B. banknotes 

or foreign coins 

Or even more foreign banknotes!


There is still a long way to go but

Hopefully, one day ALL world countries are to be added -

which will include both coins and banknotes. 


The coins & banknotes have been stored "off site" 

with a local storage company, for security reasons.
