Look for serial numbers beginning AA01

The lot was one of the few low serial number specimens in circulation. Others on the site are selling for sums around the £100-200 ($129-259) mark.

Our British readers should keep an eye out for notes with serial numbers beginning AA01, as these are from the first printing and are highly sought after by collectors.
