This is a very well preserved calaim bazaruco produced at the mint at Goa. Initials G-A for Goa.
It bears no date nor legend, but is attributed to the reign of D. Filipe II (1598-1621).
This very coin is the plate specimen in the Gomes catalogue (F2 14.01) and many years ago obtained at one of the Schulman auctions in Amsterdam.
