Here is a very nice example of a bank cheque from the Bank of Australasia. dated April 18th 1889 It has a small amount of fading through the banks insignia and some ink smears from poor penmanship.
Overall it is still in great condition.
Ballarat was renowned for its vast riches during the goldrush of the 1850’s and 60’s.
This cheque represents a unique piece of the latter part of that historical era and as such is highly collectible and desirable for all collectors.
