Comments Sayaji Rao's Baroda paisas form a most interesting series in that there is a whole series of different symbols featured on the reverse. This coin features a rayed sun.

The coin carries an obvious error date of AH 1661! This date is extremely strange. It could easily have been explained as a retrograde 1221, but that year was the first year of Sayaji Rao's reign, when his coins carried a dagger symbol, not a rayed sun. The rayed sun coins were issued only in AH 1247. So how the die cutter mistakenly carved 1661 on this coin is a complete mystery!
