Notes :
Reserve bank archives indicate that the serial number range U/0 000001 to U/0 039188 was used on Cerutty/Collins £10 notes. An annotation in the archive states that the notes were of the ’old design’, and that 39,188 were issued. None were known to exist until a VG example was auctioned by Nobles in 2011. That note is pictured above.

A discovery confirming the existence of this variety mentioned on page 198 of Vort Ronald’s, Australian Banknotes second edition 1983.

Lot 4781 at the Noble Sale 96 held on 7th April, 2011 was an r52d banknote – graded VG – which realised a price of $34,950.
