Notes :

Following complaints that the smaller 10 shilling note introduced in 1933 could be mistaken for a ten pound  note, the words TEN SHILLINGS were added on three of the borders.

Approximately 48,183,000 notes were printed. Variations in the colour of notes of this type occur, from a  light brown to a darker chocolate. There are also variations in the background red and green colours.
