Quote from: chrisild on April 30, 2017, 10:51:50 PMInterestingly, each side of the note shows a sentence that starts with "I". There is Elizabeth's "I promise to pay the bearer on demand" etc., and Churchill's "I have nothing to offer but" etc. It does make sense to differentiate between the Queen putting a promise on "her" money, and any other quotes. Actually the Jane Austen £10 designs that I have seen so far also use quotation marks - no idea whether that will be changed too ...
