Price Summary: The R17x issued by NPA was the last issued prefix of the pre decimal banknote Ten Shilling Legal Tender Issues. The issued AH65 was issued 3 years prior to this issue.
The AH69 was the last prefix issued in 1961, and as such as the general Australian population were not aware of the transition to decimal currency in 1966.
The AH/69 was issued only 2 months before the discontinuation of pre decimal currency, with grades of Uncirculated although rare, are available.
The AH/65 on the other hand was issued for general circulation, with few that survive in Uncirculated grade, hence the RR of $2450.00. Source Renniks 26th edition Coin/Banknote Catalogue 2016.
