THE BANKNOTE SALE
Banknote & Paper Money Consultant
Paper money expert and consultant, Kevin Watmough, is a highly valued member of our team with over thirty years in the trade. A familiar face at both national and international coin and banknote fairs and shows, Kevin spends most of his time meeting dealers and collectors. He also deals with appraisals, grading, valuations, consignments and cataloguing for our auctions.
Kevin has turned what had been a small section in our main coins and collectables sale, into a very successful stand-alone sale.
Banknotes are collected similarly to coins, with an eye for condition, but also an eye for the details unique to paper money. These being the intricacies of serial numbers, letters, and printing errors.
The handsome ‘White Fivers’ and others of the Bank of England represent true classics. Banknotes should be kept flat, in hard-backed envelopes or specialist acid-free sleeves.
