A RARE 19th century Huddersfield five pound note was sold for £450 at an auction.

 The valuable black and white fiver was produced by the Mirfield and Huddersfield District Banking Company. Before the auction, at Spink in Bloomsbury, London, the note had been expected to sell for between £400 and £500. It is a proof, so it was never issued and is in "extremely fine" condition. It was bought by a mystery bidder.
