Banknotes Auction Report 17th June 2020

22nd June 2020

The current COVID-19 heath crisis has led many companies to change their practices to bring them into line with the current government safety guidelines. So, for the safety of our customers and our staff, our 17 June 2020 Banknotes sale was a closed-door auction, with no room bidders allowed.


There was still plenty of interest in the auction however with a plethora of book bids and a great number of bidders on the telephone.


We began with the English banknotes section and this Mahon £1 WWII Guernsey overprint realised £780, this Peppiatt 1948 10 shilling replacement sold for £900 and this Kentfield £50 first run with extremely low serial number achieved £348.


Moving on to the world banknotes section, highlights include this French India 1938 1 roupie realised £660 and this 1937 5 roupies sold for £690. This Palestine 1929 £1 achieved £324.


Our next banknote auction will be held on Wednesday 19th August 2020.


Look out for the full catalogue for this sale, which will appear on our website in the next few weeks. Also keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages which will include updates of our latest auction news.
