Lost and Stolen Banknotes

Missing 2010 Jersey Banknotes

In June 2010 two complete low number sets of the new Jersey 2010 issue banknotes were ordered from a Jersey dealer and sent via registered mail to me. On arrival some of the notes had been removed from the envelope containing the notes. The low numbers sets were numbered 000069 and 000070. The denominations and serial numbers that were missing from the sets are as follows:
PNL Jersey 2010 £20 AD 000070
PNL Jersey 2010 £50 AD 000069
