A Scottish banknote from 1836 has sold for a world record price at auction.
The £1 note sold for £9,000 ($US14,800) at the charity auction held by the Clydesdale Bank, beating the old record of £7,000 ($US11,500) set in 2001.
The note was issued by the North of Scotland Bank, which became part of Clydesdale Bank in 1951.
