Estimate: £60 - £80

Ramsey & Isle of Man Bank, One Pound, 18—, unissued (Quarmby 218). Extremely fine (£60-80)


A specious note. The bank was owned by Llewellyn McWhannell, who issued card money in Ramsey in 1810. Its existence in the Rolls Court is noted up to 1826; the bank probably ceased trading shortly after that
