Welwyn Garden City eBay seller cashes in on new £5 note
A Welwyn Garden City man is selling a new £5 note with a hole in it on eBay and claims it is the 'most crinkled one' with a rare serial number.
The fiver already has a bid for £10 and bidders have until Thursday, October 27, to get their hands on the note which has a hole in it.
The new polymer £5 note has been creating a stir since it was released earlier this month, with many people selling theirs on eBay if they have a unique serial number.
The eBay user ‘a5hl3y’ from Welwyn Garden City claims the note has a ‘AA rare serial number’.
One lucky eBay seller sold his new £5 note for over £80,000 because it had the rare serial number AK47.
