I don’t miss the £1 note. I’ve got one upstairs.
It was mint, but stupidly I carried it around in my wallet for personal reasons and now it looks well used even though its not been out of my wallet for years. It was given as a tip to the Hotmetalette by a rich foreign old lady who had no idea it was essentially worthless. My Mrs has ‘only’ been here about 30 years, so she has also never seen them in circulation and thought they were new, especially as it was still shiny. I should have framed it.
