Notes :

The size of the ten shilling note was once again reduced in 1936 to permit greater efficiency by printing more  notes per sheet. This followed close on the heels of similar action taken by the Bank of England for notes  issued in Great Britain.

Approximately 98,120,000 of the smaller Riddle/Sheehan notes were printed. Signatures are printed in orange.  Minor variations in colour occur. The earlier notes tend to have a slightly darker shade of orange than the later  notes. The green in the mosaic background also varies slightly.

In my opinion the note was under graded, so a great eBay buy for someone…
