British India coinage under George VI 1938-1947.
 
After the death of King George V his son, King Edward VIII became the King, but abdicated before the coronation. No coins were minted using his portrait. His younger brother the Duke of York was crowned as King George VI in May 1937 and the first coin of India with his effigy was minted in 1938. After the outbreak of World War II in 1939, the price of silver started going up, in practice the silver coins became valuable then the value written on them. This led to reducing the use of silver in coins. The 1940 1/4-Rupee, 1/2-Rupee and One Rupee coins were reduced from 0.917 silver to 0.500 silver (there were a limited number of 1939 Rupees minted in 0.500 silver).

Mainly there is no mint mark for Calcutta, the Bombay issues have a small dot or diamond (commonly known as reverse B) under the lotus flower, near the bottom of the coin and the Lahore mint used a small "L" in the same position.
