India is perhaps
one of the most complicated countries in the world. The paper money
reflects that. There is an extensive range of native states issues
back into the 19th century, Mughal paper demand notes of a sort from at
least the 18th century if not before, all the old stuff is very rare.
The republican stuff after 1947 is complicated too. No one has explaned
those series letters buried in the underprints to me. Reference please?
And I believe that there are some regional releases of ostensibly ordinary
paper money that have not been explained either.
