Following the news story in last week’s Spalding Guardian about the rare five pound note issued by Spalding Commercial Bank selling for £260, a reader has submitted this share certificate first issued in 1906.

The shares were in the Stamford, Spalding & Boston Banking Company Limited, established in 1832. The owner of the shares lost money when the bank was liquidated in 1921.
