7001 - Ancient Indian Copper Coinage - This
coin appears to be from the Indian Native State of Kutch. It
has fairly thick flans and is patterned after a coin from the sultanate
of Malwa. The coin dates from between 1570 and 1850 (this is what
has been told to us...we are not experts on ancient Indian coinage). We
have a number of these, and they vary in the markings, but all are equally
distinct. They are all roughly 1/2 inch in diameter.
