3     An impressively wide-ranging world collection in five binders (using photocorners).
              Excludes China, Germany, and Scotland, which are offered here separately. The strength

5     Mixed seln. of £1 notes, mainly Scottish (inc. modern reprints from original plates, of

14     --; 1930 (19 Oct.) £1 note, generally VF+ but with tear in lower margin extending just into
              the design. SC102 (cat.£100. for VF).             ..               ..                   ..               ..                    40.

              though most are VF/EF/Unc. Includes 1.5.1946 (about VF). Cat. roughly £560.                       £120.

              North of Scotland and Town & County Bank Limited/in which is incorporated/The North
              of Scotland Bank Limited”. A rare note. In James Douglas’s
Scottish Banknotes (1975) he
              reports Town & County Bank notes being overprinted in a similar way, but makes no
              reference to North of Scotland Bank issues being treated thus. Would probably grade as Fine
              – the note is intact and colours are strong, but much wear, numerous folds and creases,
              grubby marks especially on the reverse, etc.
:                 ..                   ..               ..                £500.

      34     --; 1924 (1 March) £1 note, about F. SC710a cat.£180.  ..                   ..               ..                    60.

      36     Royal Bank of Scotland; c.1826/1831 forgery of One Guinea note. This is a good quality
              production on watermarked paper, with handwritten numbers, and signed by hand, and is in
              fair condition; some general wear and grubbiness, portions missing at left and at foot. It is
              endorsed “Forged” six times on the reverse.
              Accompanying this is an 1831 entire letter from the Custom House in Grangemouth to The
              Cashier at the Royal Bank of Scotland in Edinburgh (
GRANGE/MOUTH two-line mark, dated
             
PAID mark), in which the Collector (?) explains that the note was accepted by the First Clerk
              (who has also signed on the reverse of the note) in good faith, and asks that the bank issue a
              genuine note in its place. Accompanying write-up (from Robson Lowe’s collection ?)
              suggests that the bank did not accede, but there is no evidence that this is the case.
              It seems that the crime of banknote forgery could carry the punishment of execution,
              transportation, or amputation, but that it was
also common for banks to honour forgeries
              innocently accepted, so as to maintain confidence in paper money. A fascinating item.                £500.

      37     --; 1917 (1 Sep.) “square” £1 note, grading about VG/F, with various folds and creases,
              general wear and grubbiness from use. SC801b (cat.£180. for F.)         ..               ..                    60.
     
38     --; 1921 (29 June) “square” £1 note, Fine. SC801c cat.£160.               ..               ..                    75.
A Buyer’s Premium of 10% (vat-inclusive) will be added to all sale prices.

              at left, some stains, etc., and some violet colour rubbed on reverse). TR15 (cat.£2,000 for
              VG).      ..                 ..                 ..                 ..               ..                   ..               ..                £500.

56     Massive lot in about two dozen albums, nearly all in sets. While most are commoner issues,
              there are good sets to be found; some odds/part sets also. Condition on the whole is fine but
              for two points; {1} some of the albums have been damp at their corners which will have
              affected some cards, {2} many cards have been individually wrapped in cellophane which

A Buyer’s Premium of 10% (vat-inclusive) will be added to all sale prices.

0845 0500 886   Use this number to make bids or to check on prices after the auction – or any time you want to speak to us – from anywhere in the UK for the cost of a local rate phone call.

 

€uro Currency; We are happy to accept Euro cash payments in our shop. We display our rate beside the counter. We normally allow the market rate rounded down to the next whole penny. For example, at the time of writing, the market rate is 0.8242, so we are allowing 82p per Euro (which is probably better than your bank will give you). You can also pay for auction lots in Euro banknotes (postal customers please confirm before sending). We also accept payments in our shop in Euros, and we buy many of the old “legacy” currencies, as well as other coins and notes.

 

Most auctions include a few lots which, due to their large size or weight compared to value, will not be taken to the auction venue. They must therefore be viewed at our shop during the previous week, and successful purchasers will be responsible for their collection from us. The symbol for these is “ Ä”, and very generally speaking, there's a cut-off point of about £2 or £3 estimate per kilo weight.
If you attend the auction and buy any of these lots, you can either call at the shop during normal opening hours, or it is sometimes possible to arrange to pick up after the auction has finished (though please first speak to Mr. Murray to arrange this).

change if circumstances make it desirable.)
Up to £20, bids are in £1 steps.                From £20 to £30, bids are in £2 steps.

In order to deal with postal clients, our bid forms have been designed to make space for credit card instructions.
If you want your purchases charged in this way, please complete the appropriate section.
Do not complete these details unless you want to pay by credit card, and to have the lots posted.
We have negotiated good rates with our bank, and are able to absorb the bank charges for this service ourselves, and therefore there is no additional charge for the use of this facility, as long as postal bidders give us their details in advance of posting. Only for postal buyers where card details are given after posting, we will charge 1.9% extra (Visa/MasterCard) or 18p (Maestro and Delta), plus cost of posting receipt slip.
