Warwick and Warwick Banknotes Auction Report 20th April 2016

25th April 2016

Sunshine and blue skies were the order of the day for our April banknotes auction, a stark contrast to our February auction and a sign that spring has finally sprung! Viewers were queuing at the door to look at the lots on offer making the viewing room and the auction room itself a hive of activity! 

We began the English banknotes section, where this Harvey 1922 £5, graded as good extremely fine, realised £590.


This Peppiatt 1934 £5 Birmingham Branch, graded as very fine, sold for £944, almost double its estimate.


Staying with Peppiatt, this lovely 1936 £100, graded as nearly very fine, achieved £649.


There were two notes by Page in the auction which proved particularly popular, both experimental issues, and only one digit apart in their serial numbers. They realised a combined total of £613.


In the world section this highly unusual Bermuda 1952 issue 5 shillings colour trial sold for £306.


Scottish notes were popular as ever with this Bank of Scotland 1999 £5, graded as uncirculated, and with an extremely low serial number, achieving £247.


This National Commercial Bank of Scotland 1964 £1 specimen realised £271.


And this Union Bank of Scotland 1893 £1 specimen achieved £224.
