B.S.A. COMPANY
FEATURED ITEM
c1910-20? group of six duties: £1, £2, £5, £10, £25 and £100, each comprising the BSAC Coat-of-Arms within its own very distinctive design. All are embossed in vermilion onto thin cream card. The £5 shows letters of a watermark and the £25 with some creasing at top, otherwise all are superb with sharp embossing. A rare and spectacular group, with most duties apparently unrecorded. Presumably of proof status.
