Hi everyone new member here. I've came across a $1 Australia banknote with a cancellation stamped on it from the NAB. Shepperton Vic. 6. With I think branch number. 83-894.
Could some fill me in why it's stamped by the NAB. And is it or was it common to do so.
Any insight would be very well appreciated .

Banknotes generally aren't "cancelled" by banks. They might get withdrawn if they are obsolete or damaged, but such withdrawn notes would not receive a stamp, they'd just get bagged up and sent to the RBA.

Bank branches did used to have ink-stamps in them, for stamping deposit forms and such. I suspect such a stamp was used on your note, either deliberately or accidentally, but against normal bank practice.

Yes,'Mutes',Mutilated Notes,weren't stamped,they were returned to the RB to have their serial numbers recorded and then destroyed,burnt under supervision.
That didn't stop the girls in the Bank of England Mute section pocketing them for Months before being caught.

I used to work in a Bank back in the 1970's and it looks like a ordinary Bank Branch stamp used for cancelling cheques etc.
Probably a bored Teller, we never touched Mutes,they were just put in a bag to be returned to a cental Branch where they were returned to the RBA.

I don't see anything "wrong" with that note that would warrant "cancellation" - apart from the stamp, it seems in circulated but still re-issuable condition. So yes, not an official stamping, just a random or accidental stamp that just happens to be from a bank.

Yes,Teller with too much time on his hands,looks like a standard bank branch stamp,used to stamp cheques and when you made a deposit in the old passbook accounts.
It seems to be from the National Australia Bank in Shepparton Vict., I couldn't see a date.

Thank you all very much. For the input on this nite. I was thinking of such a accidental or bored teller. I was looking some clarification if the bank stamp was stamped on the note for a specific reason.
I Rembert the aust post use to act as a agent for the c.b.a I use to go to post office to do me passport account banking . They used stamps like this to stamp the passbook. Cheers again
