    What are these worth?

    my grandad has two £1 notes (cant remember date), but they have never been folded and the numbers are consequitve, so they have not been seperated since being made.

    any idea to how much these are worth?

    Specialist antique type people.

    Google it :thumbsup:

    There are some shops specialising in old currency, I know of one in London (obv not in Warrington). See if there is one near you under "antiques" in the Yellow Pages?

    there not scottish ones, forgot about them

    there the old ones that you can use anymore, but they are immaculate

    I've got one of these, not worth selling, is it?

    To be honest they are not worth much as they aren't that old or rare. I have some not worth getting rid of. They are not mint like yours. You may get £5 for them at the moment from a collector. Best to hang on to them.

    As I said keep hold of them, they will be worth more if you keep them mint. They were only taken out of circulation 20 years ago so aren't old or rare.

    Im taking it is the last issue of the £1 note? Because if you have an original 1797 £1 note that is mint then yes they are worth lots of money.

    But they are still not legal tender.
    Even in Scotland. :w00t:

    I've got a shoe box full of Iraqi money with Saddam's picture on, that's not worth anything but i'm going to give it to my daughter and hope that when she's older it's worth something

    A run of five consecutive mint went for £30 inc P+P on Ebay so £10 inc is your best bet at the moment. Remember there were probably millions in circulation at amy one time so there are still bound to be thousands if not ten of thousands still available.

    The dearest on ebay for a single BOE note was £32

    One pound notes ARE legal tender in scotland....my mum gets them in and out her shop all the time scottish and english ones

    Mmmm, dubious.

    Scottish £1 notes are NOT legal tender anywhere, no Scottish notes are.

    English £1 notes were with withdrawn in 1988, presumably no longer legal tender either.

    But I'm sure your mum knows more than anyone else in the country about the status of these notes so I'll believe you :whistling:

    That doesn't make them legal tender.
    I know they are accepted everywhere, but technically, they are NOT legal tender.

    Scottish bank notes are not legal tender in Scotland. English bank notes of denomination less than 5UKP were legal tender in Scotland under Currency and Bank Notes Act 1954. Now, with the removal of BoE 1UKP notes, only coins constitute legal tender in Scotland. English bank notes are only legal tender in England, Wales, The Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. In Scotland, 1 pound coins are legal tender to any amount, 20ps and 50ps are legal tender up to 10 pounds; 10p and 5ps to 5 pounds and 2p and 1p coins are legal tender to 20p (separately or in combination). 2 pounds coins and (if you can get hold of one) 5 pound coins are also legal tender to unlimited amounts, as are gold coins of the realm at face value (in Scotland at least).

    TBH unless the notes are REALLY REALLY old, they are not worth anything.

    No technically you are right they are not 'legal tender' but are 'legal currency'.:)

    I've got a couple 2p coins that are a little over 100 years old......are they worth anything....more than 4p? :giggle:

    are you familiar with the concept of irony?

    Or spelling, for that matter?
