Auction 170
English Banknotes s Third Issue T20 Red Dash in No. in serial number issue 16th December 1918 serial number B/11 078451, in a holder graded about UNC 53 EPQ and a high grade and well-preserved note for its age now over a century old. These 10 Shilling notes were produced as a result of the halt in production of the earlier Second issue with black serial numbers as there were widespread complaints that they were too easily confused with the 1 Pound notes of the same period. This resulted in the serial numbers being changed to red and these the last for the Bradbury issues with recorded prefixes only in 2 letters - B and C. An excellent opportunity for any collector to add a high-grade example of these George V period issues
