Comments This coin follows the pattern of KM 79 in the Maratha listings and continues the Maratha types from Jhansi. However, the unusual mintmarks of the trident and leaf sprig on the obverse reveal that this coin was issued during the brief period during which Awadh acquired control of the Jhansi mint. (My thanks to Jan lingen for his help in identifying this coin.)
