1988 Johnston/Fraser Ten Dollar Note - Polymer Issue
No Overdate - First Printing AB 11 to AB33 93, 94 or 96
This note was the first circulation issue Australian polymer banknote. The first printing had a thin, smooth varnish over the hologram (variable optical security device) which rapidly rubbed off when used. Printing was stopped when the problem was identified - all first printing notes have a serial number prefix between AB10 and AB 33 with the first two digits of the number being 93, 94 or 96.
