Nine-bob note goes under hammer


Recommended Posts

The myth of the "nine-bob note" has been dispelled after a rare Irish banknote went up for auction in London.


The nine shilling note was produced in County Waterford in the late 1700s.


It went under the hammer at Spink where it was estimated at between £700-£800.


It was issued by Newports Bank on 1 December 1799 and is from a collection of W.L.S. Barrett of Montreal in Canada.
