Comments The Assam coinage is unique with its octagonal coins, now copied in modern India.

I feel this coin is a forgery, intended to deceive. The surface shows some evidence of casting bubbles. Also, the weight is too low for a rupee. The execution is very good, and some might deem this genuine, but I think it is false and offer it here for those who might be interested in such things.
