Quote from: Rangnath on June 15, 2009, 09:41:38 PMNo image is provided in the Standard Catalog for the one coin of Sirohi State. One ruler is listed in the catalog: Sheo Singh, VS1873 to 1919/ 1816 to 1862. The one coin is said to have the denomination of 1/4 anna, copper with the legend on the reverse as "Zarb Raj Sirohi". The coin had previously been listed under Jodhpur, probably because of its scimitar. The sword looks much like those on Jodhpur coinage. Comments on Zeno by Jan Lingen: "The legend on those copper coins of Sirohi is very corrupt. The obverse legend has been deciphered as Zarb Raj Sirohi, Sanah 1910 (or 1901). The coins were known as Sheosahi, which indicates that they were first struck during the reign of Sheo Singh (1847-1862).Presuming the dates to be in the Vikrama Samvat era, VS 1910 (= AD1853) is the most plausible interpretation." .
