Medieval southern India
c. 15th-17th century AD
AE coin (19 mm, 6.51 g)
 
Obverse: Warrior running left, within dotted border
Reverse: Prominent dagger, flanked by sun and moon; all within circular border
Ref: NOT listed in any catalog
 
This medieval coin type is not recorded so far.  The running warrior is seen on Hoysala and Vijayanagar coins, but here the warrior is running left, instead of the usual right.  This is probably a post-Vijayanagar issue.
 
Extremely Rare and CHOICE.
