ow much is a Lac, I presume it is like but most likely not equal to Maan in cantonese that equals 10,000.
A Lac or Lakh is 100,000 and is written in figures as 1,00,000.

Hi

Even i have a similar note but the series starts with A and i think the governor is Gubbay. Can you please confirm whether the governor is correct and  let me know the mint place. If possible the value of this note in current market?

Mackie and Dheer,

Actually not all British India coins are costly. You can get a quarter anna for about Rs. 50. The half annas are a bit costlier because they aren't so common. But none of these are anywhere close to the higher denominations minted in silver. Silver one rupee coins of George V and George VI are worth a few thousand rupees. British India rupee notes don't sell for anything less than a thousand.

Regards,

Ravi

Agreed. I guess there are one or two coins for someone who does year mint variations that are quite expensive.

No comments on genuineness of the banknote as I'm no expert, but you should buy this particular banknote only from a reputed dealer. It's very expensive even in poor condition and you should never buy it online. Meet the dealer personally, get the banknote verified from an expert and then buy. It's better if you buy it from some reputed auction house as most (all?) auctions houses have lifetime return policy if found fake at any point of time.

A very popular and expensive note. There are quite a few fakes. One of my Friends who specialises in British India ended up buying a fake. This goes to show the quality of fakes. Best buy from reputed dealer.

Hi,
I just found these notes which belonged to my father... any additional info on them...meaning I did read what has been posted before...but looking for any additional input... seems like one was printed in Rangoon.
