Nice! Shame you’re missing the old £1 note and of course the earlier £10, £20, £50 and £100 notes.

Thanks Dave and Ian. I’ve added the £1 note.

Cool! Good find Dave! My brother still has one of the £1 notes at home. It’s a bit bedraggled though.

You can find a list of all the others at http://www.irishpapermoney.com and more specifically: http://www.irishpapermoney.com/b/bspec/picbspec/bs1.html

They all have watermarks though, understandably, so perhaps you can’t add them.

Thanks for the links Ian. I’ll save them for another poster in the future. :)
