Description

During the early stages of WW1 the transportation of gold (sovereigns) became a security issue as most able bodied men were conscripted to the war effort, and despite there being a legal ban on banknotes of less than £5 being issued for the previous 100 years an emergency order was passed that bank notes for 10/- and £1 could be issued to reduce this risk. The bank of England however was not in a position to legally do this so the treasury stepped in and printed treasury notes for these values. As no watermarked bank paper had been made the first runs of these notes were printed on stamp paper - as expected they did not last long so there was a further issue on banknote paper - this is one of the 2nd issue notes - a very high value and sought after note in VF condition apart from damage caused by a paperclip on the upper left hand side.
This is a genuine note not a copy - I offer a 14 day no quibble full refund of cost less postage.

I accept bank transfer/paypal/ cash/cheque(pending clearance) and postal order
