Reference book used: English Paper Money by Duggleby / Pam West
What is meant by:
Type: l/~~ : l = Prefix letter; / = (over); ~~ = number i.e: B/93 or B1/10
l~~l = letter, number, number, letter i.e. S12N
The Prefix letters are listed under PREFIX
'Start'; 'Last' or "Replacement" Prefixes are
also listed - if we have them in stock
More important numbers are also listed
as either a 'Start' or 'Last' number. i.e: 01 or 99
I do not generally like using the grade UNC or UNUSED
unless the notes have come straight from a bank or machine or in an unused block !
Therefore this (generally) only applies to modern banknotes.
All of the banknotes that have survived from the earlier period (Bradbury to O'Brien)
could have corner flicks from being counted by bank clerks, or slight mis-handling !
If the note was obtained from "general circulation" it will have passed through at
least one set of hands so by right had been in "circulation".
However, that note could still be un-creased !
Therefore I feel the term UNCirculated is a misnomer and should not be taken literally.
I feel that UNC really means "Nice, New, Clean, no marks, creases, etc. and looks as
if it just came fresh from a bank !" Impossible to prove it has NOT be circulated !
For many years the highest grade I used was EF+ (for UNC) however this I have been
told has confused some collectors and I heard what you say.
Therefore, from now on I will start to re-grade the notes on my website (10 April 2018).
Changing my EF+ & EF-EF+ grades.
My 'new' grade listing will be (in order of highest grade first !)
UNC for banknotes that to me look as if they are "clean, no marks, no creases
and look as if they could have come straight from a bank" !
AUNC for banknotes that to me look as if they there is a flick, mark or
even a faint crease. Even if not obvious.
If I notice anything, such as a more obvious crease, I would grade down to
AUNC, EF+ or EF
depending on how strong a crease or mark is.
I will also try and indicate what I have noticed, when possible !
Pin-holes do NOT effect the grade but can result in a devaluation of price
I try to be as careful with grading as I possibly can - but grading in not an exact science !
So far I have altered the grades of: Bradbury, Fisher, Mahon & Catterns banknotes
White £5, Fisher, Peppiatt to Somerset I will do as I get time
Runs of 3 or +
