The ticket below, is either from 1959 or 1964 according to the date. Strange price on it 50 shillings instead of £2.50. Can anyone please advise?

Almost certainly West Ham v Manchester United at Hillsborough 14th March 1964.

Must be a very good 1970 ticket at that price. I have a north terrace seat for the 1970 final which was only 25/.

£2.50 in 1954 or 1964 you are having a laugh John.
£2. 10 shillings or 50 shillings.
Decimalisation didn't start till 1971, or am I just showing my age now.

My guess would be 1970 - I've never seen 1964 semi final ticket with that red band across the middle. Also the West Ham programme before the semi in 1964 quoted ticket prices of up to 30/- only

Thanks to everyone who responded. 1970 does look the obvious choice, even if I did think it should be £2.50!
