ONE POUND 1952 Coombs/Wilson good Extremely Fine

Serials: W/4 44566*

Superb, original paper - incredibly crisp, with 3 vertical folds.

Star replacement notes from the KGVI period are incredibly rare and highly prized - very few survive for collectors to consider today.

When the previous banknote boom was in full swing, it wasn't unusual to see notes change several hands over the space of a year or so, with the grade increasing lock step along the way!

The previously-accepted practice of pressing banknotes to improve their appearance means that of the few KGVI stars that remain in existence, just a fraction of that amount remains in original condition.

This particular note can be counted among them - it has incredibly crisp and original paper - it is stronger than most standard Coombs Wilson £1 notes getting around at the moment! The note has 3 vertical folds, and two minor teller flicks on the right hand side.

If you're after a premium example of this rare and historic note, and don't want any nasty surprises in future when it comes time to sell, this note is certainly worth considering.

This note made a cool $32,000 hammer price when it was offered in a Brisbane auction in February 2007.
