Posted on 11/21/2023

This month’s featured set spans a century and belongs to MKMITTAL79.

This month, we feature an extensive and comprehensive PMG Registry collection: an India, 1917-Date Set, found here.

MKMITTAL offers a stunning presentation of the evolution of Indian paper currency over the past 100-plus years. He describes his No. 1-ranked set best himself: “The India complete Set 1917-Date is always challenging and is a dream set for any Indian collector as it is a complete basket of Indian notes Issued by [the] Government of India in British Raj under King George V and King George VI, continuing with The Reserve Bank of India till Mahatma Gandhi series with many historical and beautiful reverse designs...”

With updates made to the set as recently as a few weeks ago, MKMITTAL shows his dedication with a great attention to detail.

Sprinkled with many PMG "Top Pops," including the Top Pop note graded PMG 69 Superb Gem Uncirculated EPQ above, his slideshow here should not be missed.

MKMITTAL holds a special interest in collecting these notes and offers his personal reflection on his set: “Each and every note of this set is close to my heart,” he writes, noting that it features many fancy serial numbers, including Repeaters, Solid Serial Numbers, Ascending Ladder and Descending Ladder notes. He adds: “Among them all, my one favourite note is from Portrait Notes of King George V Pick #5 as ORDER OF THE STAR OF INDIA - HEAVENS LIGHT OUR GUIDE. The British Crown bestowed this honour through the order of knighthood to Indian Kings, as well as British officers and administrators...”

Thank you, MKMITTAL, for sharing this elaborate set, an impressive presentation of lovely, high-quality Indian notes that span over a century of history. We look forward to seeing what updates may occur with this set and your other top-ranking sets in the future.
