The note with white border margins and in light blue and light brown with lion at centre, arms and s at left and value in wording in black panels at upper centre left and right in addition to the numerical ones to lower of the note on obverse and reverse in light brown with sailing ship at right, arms at centre and values in words in each 4 corners. Despite the introduction of solid £5 symbols it appears that the public continued to confuse £1 and £5 notes so renewed experimentation with the colours of the £5 notes was undertaken. In 1963 it was agreed to prepare essays in blue to reflect the chosen colour of £5 notes. UNC and an Exceptionally Scarce and seldom seen issue
