" can always buy with confidence...His research on banknotes is exceptional."

I would like to say, in my dealings with Marcus Condello of Collectable Banknotes Australia, I have found him to be very honest and easy to deal with through many transactions we have conducted. Marcus is always a very good communicator and thorough with his gradings of banknotes he sells. Marcus can be trusted in his descriptions so you can always buy with confidence. I salute Marcus in the way he conducts his numismatic business, most professional. He is always trying to look after his valued clients of which I am most fortunate to be included. His research on banknotes is exceptional and I have called on Marcus many times for his opinion in helping me write articles for the Australasian Coin and Banknote (CAB) Magazine. I wish Marcus all the best for the future and a big thank you for dealings of the past.

"...saves me time...very reliable, honest and professional..."

I have known Marcus Condello for a few years and I feel very fortunate to have been able to acquire some rare notes from him in that time (First and Last Prefix notes).


Marcus has done a lot of research over the years as to how rare certain prefixes are. He is always willing to search for them, which saves me time and helps me add them to my collection.


I have found Marcus to be very reliable, honest and professional when buying and talking with him and he can explain to me why certain Prefixes are hard to find. If I want advice, he is always willing to help. Most of all I find Marcus to be very friendly and easy to talk to.

"...I have never had to return a single note! You won't look back!"

I have known Marcus Condello for more years than I care to remember. I’m delighted to say I have found that he provides serious value for money, has many custom and unique ideas, extraordinary networking alliances, banknote grading services, auction services, market overviews and key research intelligence. He is confidential at all times, extremely friendly and has his finger on the pulse. Being a member of Collectable Banknotes Australia also entitles me to interesting regular newsletters, special discounts and bonuses.


In all of the years I have had dealings with Marcus and the countless transactions that I have completed with him, I have never had to return a single note! I thank him for his assistance in helping me track down particularly scarce banknotes in the polymer series. I naturally recommend to all banknote collectors to contact Marcus promptly, you won’t look back!

Are you frustrated and sick and tired of wasting your money, time and energy returning banknotes that are not as described? Well you don't have to worry any longer...relax and leave the worrying to me!


I am so confident in my gradings that I am prepared to stand 100% behind them and offer you Australia's BEST banknote guarantee!


If, in the unlikely event, I have incorrectly graded a note, not only will I refund you 100% of the purchase price and pay for the return postage, I will also give you a credit voucher to the value of 10% of the initial purchase price to use in future (maximum credit is $200).


I can't give you any greater peace-of-mind or be any fairer to you than that, can I?
