New Stock - 1914 'Bradbury' £1 Treasury Note 2nd issue.

We don't just sell furniture here at Collinge's. Here is a lucky find from yesterday. A rare 2nd issue £1 Treasury bank note produced in a hurry at the outbreak of the first war. Thanks to the Royal Philatelic Society for the following details:
In 1914 just prior to the outbreak of the First World War, Lord Atterbury, Controller of H.M Stationery Office and Sir John Bradbury, the Secretary to the Treasury met at his house, overnight they produced a design for the emergency 10/- and £1 note, however, no banknote paper existed except for that used for white notes and thus, for a speedy issue the simple cypher watermarked stamp paper was utilised. The first issue red 10/- and black £1, both uniface, were quickly put into circulation, picking up the nickname "Bradbury's".
Check our ebay site for this and other treasury notes for sale this week.
