This note sits proudly atop PMG's pop report at the time of cataloging. PMG has graded just 12 examples of this Pick number, challenging collectors who wish to acquire one of these treasures.

This example has vibrant red color with orange and yellow hues throughout. Prefix HA with HAJ arched on each side of the arched Reserve Bank of India cornice atop the note. Issuing office of Bombay noted on the bottom. H.V.R. IYENGAR signature at the Governor's panel.
