Product Description

The British 10 shilling banknote featuring J.S. Fforde was a banknote issued by the Bank of England in the mid-20th century. It was first introduced in 1961 and was in circulation until the early 1970s when the UK decimalized its currency.

The obverse of the banknote featured a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, while the reverse featured a portrait of the economist J.S. Fforde, who was the chief cashier of the Bank of England at the time. The note also included intricate patterns and designs, as well as the denomination "Ten Shillings" in several locations.

J.S. Fforde was an important figure in the history of the Bank of England. He served as its chief cashier from 1954 to 1966, a period during which the bank underwent significant changes, including the introduction of new note designs and the development of new payment systems. Fforde was known for his expertise in banking and his role in modernizing the Bank of England.

The 10 shilling note was one of the most commonly used denominations in circulation at the time. It was a relatively small note, intended for use in everyday transactions, and would have been familiar to many people in the UK during the 1960s. The note's design reflected the importance of both the monarchy and the Bank of England in British society and its economy.
