The first issue of 1 Rupee was in the form of a packet of 25 notes, which were unstapled, therefore without any perforation on any side. There were instances of these packets containing irregular quantity of notes - lesser or greater than 25 notes, which were reported to the Controller of Currency. This was the second print.
These notes were pre-signed and were legal tender. This was the first case of notes that sank which were pre-signed before they arrived to India from England. Some of these notes that were washed ashore were found on the Southern coast of England. There was already a quantity of notes with the above prefixes in circulation, which were withdrawn. Further re-prints for circulation continued with prefixes'B','C','D','E','F','G','H' &'J', and thereafter, from'N' to'S', with the exception of'K','L','M' &'R' as they were already used in the first issue and withdrawn.Condition : Well circulated with folds Nicks.
