being from across the pond, i am guessing this is printed on paper money, could we see a normal shot so i have some idea of how big this is?

but it looks incredibly sharp, sowing every line and detail.

Here is one of your notes I found floating on the Dead Sea in Israel. It still tastes salty. Ive noticed the money says I promise to pay the Bearer on Demand the sum of Ten Shillings, or Five Pounds. If you went to the Bank and asked for your Ten Shillings or Five Pounds, what would they give you?

What do you call someone with two kids and no income? The only word that comes to mind is "stupid".

ten shillings was the equivlent to 50p half of 1 GBP the earlier notes date back to 1928 bynx ......info on your note see below :


In 1956 Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II consented to her portrait appearing on banknotes and work started on a new design. The new design , again red/brown , was by Robert Austin measuring 140mm X 67mm , intaglio printed by the Bank of England Works Debden . These notes went on to become Series C , introduced in 1960 although 10 shilling notes were not circulated until 1963.

although these notes are obselete these can now often be found on ebay


@ ordo thanks
