Many years ago now, my parents' former next door neighbours sent my wife
and me a Royal Bank of Scotland £1 note with their residence circled on
the image on the note's reverse side. "Exit Princes Street at the Royal
Scottish Academy, make your way up the The Mound and look for the
building in the circle" were the instructions. Piers will figure out
where we were going !

You (Mike) should have no problem changing any paper £5 notes at a bank branch if
they are refused by shops. Polymer £5 notes are valid, of course.

Subject: Re: [OM] 5£ notes
Somewhere in my collection of foreign currency I have a 5£ note from the
Bank of Scotland.
So it sounds like the old 5£ notes are being phased out and may no
longer be accepted in UK stores beginning next week. My wife and I have
a few that we were saving to use on our next trip. We like to carry 100£
or so small bills in cash when arriving. It won't be until 2018 before
we could use them. Any suggestions?
