Description: 1927 Riddle/Heathershaw 'CHAIRMAN OF DIRECTORS, NOTE ISSUE DEPT.', McD #62b, R #41L, (no mid-range prefixes) serial 'Q/12 426933', Obv. Coat of Arms at left, KGV at right, Rev. Hawksbury River, Brooklyn, NSW, folds and creases with small nick at upper right, some rust spotting, a natural note retaining crispness, gFine. A new find, serial not previously recorded, Rare. [Cat McDonald Fine $40,000 VF $75,000 Renniks F $19,000 VF $32,500]

The correct title for EC Riddle was 'Governor, Commonwealth Bank of Australia'. It is believed a mix up of printing plates was responsible for some notes showing the old title 'Chairman of Directors, Note Issue Dept.'. Vort-Ronald records only five 'Q/12' examples offered on the market in the past 46 years, scarcer than the First Prefix 'Q/11' notes. This is an opportunity to own one of the rarest and most important KGV 5 Type Notes. Seldom offered on the market.
