Description:

1976 R76bii $1 Note DBP Test Serials (Single Fold Paper) Knight/Wheeler Uncirculated


Very tough to get in natural UNC grade, just half a million were printed of this type.

The DBP $1 note is one that has been enthusiastically pursued by decimal note collectors for decades, although it's perhaps only in the past decade or so that collector interest has started to drive their value to a level that matches their historical appeal and rarity.

They are the first Australian notes to have been officially confirmed as being a very limited run of test notes, and they are the only Australian notes issued since Federation that have been proven to be directly related to several Australian cities - Perth, Brisbane and Hobart.

The mintage of one million notes is exactly the same as the Coombs & Wilson first and last prefixes, and nearly as low as some star replacement notes - all of these notes are at present worth much, much more.
