Next up are the Elizabeth I 10 shilling notes (52a- 52e). Again some better than others!

& it would be great to see some of those notes on the world paper thread on Fiji too (@jvrnz or @Princetane)!

I agree, I have nothing like jvrnz.

Mine are mostly Decimal and they are on the Paper threads and even on Numista too.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. Next are Elizabeth II 5/- notes. P51a to 51e. Again, some better than others; I'm always looking to upgrade when I can!

Apologies for the variable quality of the images I have posted, some are ones I took & others from the sellers I purchased from.
Does anyone have 37g (5/- 1/1/46) or 37h (5/- 1/9/48) ? as I have never seen them & wondering if they really exist! I will post my other George VI notes soon as I get bit more time.

You don't have to apologise for anything, your images if anything have made this thread much more complete and we thank you for it.

It was interesting many of the tropical colonies had 5 shilling notes when Britain and the Dominions like NZ, Aus, SA etc started with a 10/- note. My guess is it was for natives who were paid in cash and often 5/- was about a days labour.

Also I suspect many walked around in folds of cloth, loincloths, lapcloth lava lava like garments and saris which did not have pockets, so numbers of coins were not an option.

Not sure about P-37h but 37g was added to the banknotemuseum:

Would be worth pursuing if as it appears as if P-37h must indeed be scarce.

Here are my George VI pounds and 5 pound (only have one). More gaps here. Again, the images are variable.

Thanks for the kind comments. Here are my George VI 10/- notes. Missing f, g & h.








Some are pretty grubby but they are hard to find.
