India 1 rupee - LK Jha - Is this Original or Fake
« on: January 16, 2016, 03:16:25 PM »
The first issue of Rs 1 note was by KRK Menon in the year 1949, this note is same as the design of KG Ambegoankar that you have put up.
The KRK Menon notes do not have the standard pin holes ... its amongst the rare one rupee notes going for around 6-7 K ... the others being the LK Jha, Inset B, Prefix Y going for around 4 to 5 K and the Bhootlingam of 1964 for around 10 to 20 K depending on the condition ....

The design was changed from 1951 that included the Rupee coin ...

Although the Rupee coin metal was changed to Steel in 1992, the one rupee notes  of 1992, 1993 and 1994 still have the older coins of cupro-nickel ....
I have recently purchased 1Rs LK Jha Inset B, Prefix Y note.
I just want to identify that whether it original or fake.

From Images this looks Original.
However its to be noted that its easy to fake such notes and given the price, its makes good business sense. My suggestion is have this physically examined by some collectors or dealers.
