That's a great note !!! :ninja:

 

There are apparently a lot of collectors that pay some kind of premium for "fancy" serial numbers, and I think yours qualifies nicely.

Thanks for the info, I don't plan to sell the not (before anyone asks ;) ) but was just wondering if there was anything special about it

Yes, it has a nice serial number. You should keep it in your collection as a variety of special serial number. Unfortunately, it may not worth very much as a fancy number banknote because of the irregular numbering of 46. Usually, fancy number collector go for radar ( eg. 461164 etc ), low serial number ( e.g 00003 etc ) and solid number ( e.g. 666666 etc ) The demand for such irregular fancy number does not exist. If you have a matching prefix number and the serial number, it will be highly in demand (e.g T88E 888888 ). This is highest level of fancy numbers collected by specialist collectors. They are known as super solid number which they demonstrate the possibility of having the maximum same number appearing as a number set on a banknote.

 

Radar fancy numbers banknotes are the cheapest of the variety of fancy number while the most expensive ones are the solid number fancy numbers. Most Asian fancy number collectors do not collect radars. They collect solid numbers. One of the reason is due to the availability of solid numbers in Asian countries ( eg. Philippines, Indonesia and India ). If there is demand, there is suppy. The most expensive solid number are from USA. Canadian solid numbers are also very high in demand. I noticed that a lot of North American collect radars especially Canadian collectors. Canadian love radar. In some interesting cases, instead of naming their fancy numbers as solid number, they name them as single-digit radar. One of the reason why North American collectors collect radars is because solid number are expensive. No offence to any Canadian or North American collectors about this statement made by a Canadian friend who told me that radar fancy numbers are "poor man collection". Each year, the demand of Canadian solid number increases and new prices also appear for fancy numbers. Each year, Canadian published a catalogue book of prices on their Canadian collectiable banknotes for their collectors. There is a sizeable number of Canadian collectors. If you visit a well-known Canadian banknote forum, you will know the strength of Canadian collectors.

 

Below is an example of a similar designed 1960s UK Hollom signature solid 888888 which I purchased in 2004 from a UK seller and later sold off as an investment piece in late 2005. It is a high demanded solid number with 888888 among Asian collectors.

Later, I managed to find a 555555 piece for my collection purchased from an Australian seller whom kept this piece for many years. Same signature Page as 466666.

Hope it help to answer some part of your question and introduce you to fancy number collecting.

Your numbers are better than mine ;) (walks off lowering his face in shame) :ninja:

 

On a serious note (not pun intended) thank for the info, as I say I will hold onto it and to be honest it was purely by chance that I got it with the 466666 serial number

 

There is nothing to be ashame. Individual collector collect different banknotes theme. Each collection is unique in it's own way. No comparsion exists. Most importantly, you are enjoying your hobby while collecting. In time to come, you may collected some important and interesting pieces for your collection. ;)

In fact, it look like a cartoon drawing. This note is the first to feature a portrait of the British king and queen. Earlier banknotes of Bank of England do not have any portrait of king and queen on their banknotes. ;)
