Title: Banknote series with poorly unified designs
Post by: <k> on October 15, 2017, 04:22:05 PM
In the coin design board, you will find this topic:

Circulation sets with poorly unified design (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,19015.0.html).

As an example, I give the Austrian set (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,19015.msg128481.html#msg128481).

Are there any such banknote series, where the different notes just do not seem to gel?

The second Guernsey series meets this criteria to my way of thinking.

A new series of notes were introduced in 1969 in denominations of £1 and £5 that were reasonably matching but then in 1975 a £10 was added of a totally different design.

Yes, very different. You will be persona non grata in Guernsey now, for publishing this. So what did the reverses look like, I wonder?

And no 20 pound note, I notice.

Well...at least the backs show buildings and water  on all three pieces...
