An interesting site I came across while researching a token from Willings Services Limited

See other parts of the site for more fake coins information.

Amit, point taken re: Gaj/Guz but no way finger is 1 inch! Just take a ruler or inch-tape and measure your index finger, from fingertip to knuckle, and you will find it closer to 4 inch approx.

Mitresh, As Alan says, it is the width of the finger and not the length. I had learned these from our gardener when I was a little kid. He always mentioned how different plants needed to be planted different distances away and used words as Hath (Hand) - the distance from elbow to finger tips (used for larger plants); fingers (ungli) for distance of smaller plants & shrubs etc..........

Very nice coin.  I like the overstrike.  I have a bronze :-(  Not nearly as cool.

Caracalla, 211-217 I think...but I'm not sure this coin wasn't minted under Macrinus.  Contentious times!  She's worn but she a cool coin :-)

Since the city name is often the beginning of the reverse legend, I wonder...could there be a lost letter before the initial I, perhaps an N? I didn't find many provincial cities beginning with IK, but I found many beginning with NIK. Didn't immediately locate one that matched the rest of it, but that might narrow it down a tad.

aws22 beat me to it :-(  I've a similar but I think smaller.  That looks like a thick coin compared to what I've seen.  Nice.

Legend reads AVK M AVR ANTΩNINOC which makes it an issue of Caracalla,
But I can't work out the other side  - IK?ON CE C?RAO....
