The Melbourne Argus of May 2nd 1913 reported that 'one lady, who stamped 000006 was heard to say that she would look out for that number. It is likely that she may have to wait a considerable time before she sees it again'.
The note was one of eleven successfully balloted for by Senator Edward Findley (1864-1947), an Honorary Minister in the Fisher Government taking responsibility in the Senate for home affairs and Postmaster-General.
