    Lol defunct fiat, which was replaced with debased coins is worth excessive amounts of current fiat, because printing of said fiat caused inflation, thus the denomination was too small to bother with in notes, the defunct notes after being swapped for newer fiat coins became worthless and thus destroyed and thus are now rare and are now worth heaps of newer fiat notes... Oh I get it now :D

    asterisk = star = known as STAR NOTES

    Originally used to replace notes damaged while printing.

    Anyone know more?

    Value of these really is a bit crazy along with radar, solid, repeater numbers etc notes!

    [​IMG] Dont know a lot about notes but believe the practice of Star Noting was abandoned in 1971. Ill try to upload an image of an intresting note i picked up recently.
    I believe its a 1985 you see the numerals have been hand printed as the originals didnt ink, but did lightly emboss the paper.

    Silver Frost - That is an error, that the checker has seen and removed the note. That is what the hivis mark down the left side is. As ALL notes need to be accounted for and this serial was not readable. Hence the added stamp. If it was earlier then there would have been a matching * note as well.

    This should not have seen the light of circulation, yet it does look to be pretty worn ? So you have scored well. These are certainly collectible.

    Could you add anything to the history of this note. Certainly keen to hear more.

    Yes this is the only one ive had certainly hard to find . Not too much wear VF ? Its an obvious one and am surprised that its not closer to UNC.
    As for its history Austacker i got it from a little old lady who used to work in the Reserve Bank cafeteria.
    No sorry wrong story i got it from a fellow that used to have a servo ,he pulled it from the till years ago. Yer thats right.
