I've got through about a hundred more and have now become stuck on this one (although I will have to come back to some of the India coins here again soon - sorry!).

Since the image you have posted is small, I really can not pinpoint to the exact attribution.  A larger picture would definitely help, but I would guess it is really 22.341 due to the way tong is somewhat square and the way yun is depicted...
