    Jack Nicklaus 5 pound note 7th Feb 18 at 5:36 PM
    It won't mean much to all you Sassenachs but i have 6 RBS £5 notes with a picture of Jack Nicklaus on and I'm wondering if I should continue to keep a hold of them.

    They are in used but good condition but with even the mint ones on ebay are slow to shift I am doubting if they will rise in value during my lifetime as I had originally hoped

    I was reminded that I had them today on reading that paper money will no longer be accepted by shops and I would need to take them to the bank to cash them.

    I also have 4 RBS £1 notes in my collection

    Wrap notes around a golf ball and play a round, then sell as conceptual art.

    When i was on the Cabs i hated it when someone wanted to pay with Scottish notes. I know they maybe legal tender, but there are so many of them, different designs and colours, they could have been giving me money from a Monopoly box and i wouldn't have known.

    I was a pools collecter for a while and I hated getting English notes for the same reason, there was also the added danger of a forged English note which never seemed to happen with the Scottish notes.

    Or do you mean, as opposed to the super-bouncy non-folding plastic notes that have been introduced?

    The £1 notes were always handy to put in an envelope for the Oban Times "Spot the Shinty" (spot-the-ball) entries
