Banknotes

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.

A section of our bi-monthly auction is devoted to banknotes with clear scans shown for illustration.
