Comments
This type was illustrated by only a line drawing in Goron & Goenka's catalogue, and was not listed in Rajgor's, befitting its rarity. Goron & Goenka suggested a weight of 2.9 gm, but said this was probably too low because all the coins they knew were very worn. This example, at 3.27 gm, perhaps gives us a better idea of the correct weight, although the specimen appears to be an overstrike. An EXCEPTIONAL example of a RARE type, possibly the nicest one known.
 
The coin is featured on the Ghorid page of the CoinIndia website, where a more detailed photo can be seen.
