This coin arrived today. The person who sent it to me thought this is Jodhpur KM#145.
Myself, I am convinced it is KM#144.

What do you guys think?

Hi Bart,
I think that the design for the Km 144 and the Km 145 are too similar to decide, unless you can see all of the date.  There is so much variability as to where the calligraphy appears on the flan.  However, I think that the milled coinage does have accurate weights.  The 144 is supposed to weigh 3 grams.  The 145 weighs 2.6.  I have two Km 145s; both weigh 2.7 grams; a lot closer to 2.6 than to 3 grams.  Try weighing yours and let us know.  I sure am curious!

Hi Richie,

Thanks for your input. I'll weigh it, but as my scale broke down, I'll first have to replace it.

About the difference between KM#144 and KM#145: I thought it had something to do with the presence (or abcense) of a Persian 6. My coin doesn't have that Persian 6.

My coin does have the Persian "6".  You seem to be right Bart. Your coin would be Km 144. I would still like to know the weight of your coin.
