Yeah I'll flick them under my scanner when the working day is over. I'm in Europe so that will be in about 2 hours from now :-)

Alright here goes. First, the 10 Shillings. Just a pity for the pinhole in the top margin, but hey, it doesn't affect the design and in any better grade this note is a lot more expensive than the $190 I paid for it.





Then, the One Pound, which was a real bargain on eBay. I guess I was just lucky enough to pick it up and the auction ended before any seriously interested buyers noticed it. It was the first R&N note I bought and only afterwards I found out it was a pretty valuable note.





Finally, the 5 Pounds. Only missing note in the series is a 10 Pounds but that one is currently out of reach (and not really a priority either).





I hope this has been informative for you, and I'd like to thank you for viewing.

Thanks for sharing. Great notes & sounds like you did quite well on attaining them!

All these QEII note images reminds me of this video:

I felt annoyed that I left out a note at the very beginning, I had intentions of adding, but missed for no other reason than I was in a rush to get this QEII thread started.

AUSTRALIA PRE-DECIMAL
The first time we see QEII on Australian banknotes is in 1953 on the Australian Pound. The image is her profile, which appears almost like a statue which seem to add many years to her appearance. To get a better idea of Australia's early pre-decimal currency see this bank note museum link:
http://www.banknote.ws/COLLECTION/c...%20AUSTRALIA

P-30 ONE Pound:
I have seen these green/black 1 notes up for auction but for the most part they're common prefixes & they're often P-34 (the "Reserve Bank" later dates). The 2 versions look nearly identical & are easy to confuse. The best way to distinguish the early "Commonwealth Bank of Australia (P-30)" from the more recent "Reserve Bank of Australia (P-34)" is to check whether the text is above (P-30) or below (P-34) the 'Coombs-Wilson' signatures. This 1 note also has * replacements at the end of HA90, HA91, HE91 prefixes. Premiums are placed on the first (HA00) and last (HF65) prefixes too.

P-34 ONE Pound:

This note is not that difficult to acquire this "Reserve Bank" 1 in high grades. The price tag is more related to the popularity & the prefixes of each note. Just like its predecessor, P-34 too had replacement prefixes (HE90 to HE99) & has a keen following for the first (HF65) & last (HK65) prefixes. Some replacements are more scarce than others.
https://en.numista.com/catalogue/note202360.html

If you wish to pick up one of the early pre-decimal QEII notes (or other denominations) than I highly recommend you check out "Coins and Australia" website which gives an excellent break down of the signatures, tough prefixes & various replacements to look (plus their approximate BV):

Thanks to all those who have provided feedback & checked out this thread! Feel free to add your examples too!

I picked up this 5 from Jersey a few months ago & also got the 10 note to complete that series but my scanner isn't working. Here's the 5 (P-9b):

Series E Kentfield / Dickens 10 note. First prefix - A01.
