    India Giesecke and Devrient LEAD Test 1000 Rupees Note

    India Reserve Bank of India 1000 Rupees 5.11.1998 Pick Unlisted Giesecke and Devrient Lead Test Note.
    An impressive note and the first example that this cataloguer has seen. The design is dated to 1998, which is two years before the first issuance if the actual 1000 Rupee note. This note is executed in a different color from the red issued note, but uses the same layout with some minor design changes around the frames. The existence of the LEAD holographic strip in the right side also suggests this note was probably printed to sell the Giesecke and Devrient technology.
    As India has its own banknote printing works, it is unlikely this test note was printed to acquire the entire printing contract. This note is probably unique, and exhibited only to the highest ranking officials in the Reserve Bank and Note Security Printing and Minting Corporation of India. A must for any collector of Indian notes, with its lofty grade and ladder serial number. PMG Superb Gem Uncirculated 67 EPQ.

    罕見印度Giesecke and Devrient 印刷1000盧比試印鈔

    1998年印度儲備銀行1000盧比。Giesecke and Devrient印刷, 單面試印鈔。
    令人印象深刻的試印鈔,也是編者首次經手的個例子。設計日期為1998年,就是實際1000盧比紙幣發行前兩年設計的。此鈔有不同顏色的試樣,但使用相同的設計風格,並在框架周圍進行一些小更改。在右側LEAD防偽特徵也說明Giesecke & Devrient創新技術。 Giesecke & Devrient (中文又稱"捷德")是著名專業從事鈔票印刷以及供應防偽紙和鈔票處理設備的公司。該公司於印度有自己的鈔票印刷工程,因此排除印刷這份試印鈔以獲得整個印刷合同的可能性。所以這枚試印鈔可能是獨一無二的,只向印度儲備銀行和印度安全印刷和造幣公司的最高級官員展示。品相無可挑剔,加上崇高的評分和趣味序號, 對於任何印度鈔票的收藏家來說,實在不容錯過。 PMG Superb Gem Uncirculated 67 EPQ.
