An extremely rare Isle of Man 1975 50p note No. B009548, signed in blue ballpen by Barry Sheene and Mike Hailwood on front and reverse respectively, sold together with four TT pin badges and tea towel
Signatures clear, note creased
Provenance: Signatures obtained by the vendor during a visit to the Isle of Man in 1973
Note: World Champion motorcycle road racer Barry Sheene only raced the TT once in 1971 and indeed was publicly critical of how dangerous the course was. Mike Hailwood on the other hand is a TT legend. He first rode there in 1958, winning four replicas. He gave Honda their first TT wins in 1961 with a Lightweight double and won his last race in 1979, following his 1978 comeback after 11 years in retirement.
