Duck River Co-operative Butter and Bacon Factory Co. Ltd. at Smithton, Tasmania. The factory opened in 1904 when the farmers of the district formed a co-operative to set up the factory and commenced the making of butter and bacon.
This exchange note for the sum of 12 pounds 3 shillings and 10 pence made payable to John Cornell and Company was issued 4 years after the co-ops founding. Dated October 24th 1908.
It is in reasonable condition, with only minor damage to the edges and some light staining. Still a very nice example of a banking instrument from early 20th century Tasmania.
Has a nice example of the 6 pence stamp duty stamp adhered.
