Condition is not so good but then Haj notes are not easy to find. For prices, check price realization at the 3 auction houses in India. You should be able to find one form a recent auction......... or ask some dealer if he has the price guide for Indian bank notes.........

Hi! The scanned note is not a Haj note. It is a Persian Gulf issue that circulated OUTSIDE of India in the countries that now comprise the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council). Simply put these notes circulated in Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Dubai etc.

The colour of the note (Orange) and the "Z" prefix to the serial number on the note distinguishes the Persian Gulf issue from its counterpart circulating in India.

The approximate price for the Rs 1 Persian Gulf note is US$ 300/- (Rs 15,000 approx) if in good condition. The scanned note is of very poor quality hence should not be worth more than say Rs 5-8 thousand.

Hope it helps.

Regards.

Here is the Gulf 1 Rupee (P-R1) that I obtained many years ago, strangely enough I got this before I collected notes. The coin dealer showed it to me and I had never seen a red 1 rupee note so I purchased it.  The price back then $12, now I can't afford these!!



When showing non-collectors my notes I often show them this pair as some are familiar with the regular 5 Rupee (P-35b) but the Gulf 5 Rupees (P-R2) always amazes them and me too!   Both notes are signed by H V R Iyengar. The obverse has a few differences and the reverse seems to be identical.
