GREAT ITEM Consolidated Bank Notes, colloquially known as Ploughman banknotes were issued from 1929 to 1941 as a direct replacement for the notes in circulation of the commercial banks operating within the Irish Free State. They served as an interim measure to wind up the banks' note issues as the A Series (Lavery) notes were brought into circulation. The Currency Commission Ireland was the overall Issuing Authority for both the Lavery notes and the Ploughman notes. Ireland consolidated banknotes: all eight commercial banks in the state issued the Ploughman notes.
Rare Bank of Ireland Ltd. The hugely collectable, almost enigmatic'ploughman' series of Irish banknotes represents one of the world's most sought after banknote types.
