Prasanth,

As far as I know there was a 10000 rupees issue by east India as well British India.

Here is a link on Wikipedia that talks about a 10000 rupee uniface underprint note.

It is probably a Replica note. Did the dealer claim that the note is real? 


FYI : If it is George V, it is not East India company. EIC was dissolved around 1857 and all of its lands became a possession of the crown.

Here's a link of someone selling it on ebay too. But that is a George VI issue and not a EIC issue

www.ebay.ca/itm/Rs-10-000-Rupees-VOC-Bristish-East-India-Company-RP-/150668092703

The above ebay auction claims that it is replica.

Well a bank note with King George V's potrait can't belong to East India Company, that's common sense as the British Crown assumed direct administration of India from 1858. The earliest British Indian 10000 Rupees bank note was released in 1899.

J.B. Taylor signed 10000 Rupees note of 1928 featuring George V comes with 8 languages  :)

I think the currency in the pic is also a replica :)

(Check the serial #)

It's not replica but specimen (serial all zeros and specimen stamped) whereas the Ebay link you provided is a replica of a specimen note (since specimen is not mentioned but all serial numbers are zeros). Specimen notes are official issues whereas replicas are private.
