Warwick and Warwick Banknotes Auction Report 22nd April 2020

23rd April 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 22 April 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.

This Bradbury first issue 1914 10 shillings described as fine, achieved £156.

This Harvey 1918 £5 described as fine, sold for £180.


And this Peppiatt 1945 £5 described as extremely fine, achieved £192.
