This run of 5 Johnstone Stone banknotes have a very light centre fold and some notes have some light spots of staining quite possibly caused through poor storage and contact with old staples.
The notes have good edges and no pin holes.
They are being sold as is but are still a wonderful short run of notes in better than average condition.
Perfect for the beginning collector. The price is right.

The Yolngu (or Yol?u) are an Indigenous Australian people inhabiting north-eastern Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory of Australia. Yolngu vfwvrally means “person” in the language spoken by the people. One of the most well known bark painters from Arnhem Land. The reproduction of one of his designs was produced on the Australian one dollar note in 1966. (originally without his knowledge – when he became aware of this, he was given financial compensation). The payment by the Reserve Bank of Australia to Malangi began issues of Aboriginal copyright in Australia. He was born at Mulanga, on the east bank of the Glyde River.
