Auctioneer’s Note: Presenting a highly important fancy number collection of 10 Rupees of Reserve Bank of India, having the portrait of Mahatma Gandhi on the obverse and Collage of Rhino, Elephant and Tiger on reverse.
This collection has been prepared with exceptional efforts and paramount patience in the last 10-12 years with the unique and original idea of collecting all the 19 fancy numbers (mentioned above) with the numeric prefixes from 00(x)-99(x). Here (x) indicates the sub-prefix letter which could be any from A to W.
Total of 1900 notes (100 sets) built as a Mega Collection, on the theme of 19 Notes in each set, of all Prefixes starting from 00x to 99x consisting of 19 fancy number notes under each prefix. To make it simple, this set consists of fancy numbers of 100000, 200000, 300000, 400000, 500000, 600000, 700000, 800000, 900000, 111111, 222222, 333333, 444444, 555555, 666666, 777777, 888888, 999999, & 1000000 (Ten Lakh, the Last Note of the Series) for all the prefixes mentioned.
We would like to state an example here that any bank note serial number printing process begins with the prefix 00A bearing the first note serial number 00A 000001 and last 00A 1000000, unless there is an exceptional case of changes having been adopted in the pattern, design, security measures etc. in the middle of the printing process. After the printing of 10 Lakh (1 Million) notes, the prefix gets changed to 00B and the above process is repeated. It is uncertain for us to know that which Printing Press adopts which sub-prefix Letter and it can only be known with the Insets used. The 4 Currency Printing Press in the country use the Insets as: Mysore – Plain Inset (No Inset), A, B, C & D; Dewas – E, F, G & H; Nashik – L, M, N, P & Q; Salboni – R, S, T, U & V
