Difficult to judge from a picture. I think the effect of the rim from 11 to 3 o'clock is light only. The "found in a river" story is credible. Rivers tend to have sandy bottoms. As long as the coins are not directly exposed to streaming water and the water is reasonably clean, they are well protected against wear. A top layer of mud that shuts out oxygen is even better.

All in all, without weight and diameter this coin looks genuine to me, until otherwise shown.

If I go by your logic then seller is at huge loss cause as far my knowledge goes for every item sold on ebay te seller has to pay some percentage of the final cost of the item to ebay. If its a sellers duplicate ID then too he has to pay that amount to ebay as the product is sold. Why would e do that?

These are all business tactics. The seller has already sold number of these types of coins and he is in large profits. He does not mind paying 5%of total deal amount to ebay. He need not pay paisa pay of 4.8% and shipping charges. He will show that transaction went smoothly and even exchange excellent feed backs. The outsider will get wrong signals and he will purchase the item even at slightly higher rate.  Who is profited?

Please judge from the photo. Is it a fake? I think so. If it really is then is it contemporary or modern?

............ If its a sellers duplicate ID then too he has to pay that amount to ebay as the product is sold. Why would he do that?

It is to lure the gullible to pay higher prices. Some one watching this sale may feel that the coin is worth that much........ next time he lists it, some one may fall for the trap and pay him a good price. I have also seen this happen at auctions. I can say this for sure as I was offered such a deal.

A coin of Kutch as selling at an average price of 6 to 7 thousand in the market. I desperately wanted it but could not afford it. A year later. it was offered at 12 thousand or so. Again I had a budget which was a wee bit short. Six months or so later it was listed in an Auction at around the same price. I decided to go for it. It crossed 15,000 with 5 people interested. I went up to 17,500 when 3 of us were interested. At 20,000 I quit. The two then took it up to 42,500 or was it 44,000 - the price at which it was sold. Add sellers commission and VAT. Price was well over 45,000. A week later I get a call saying that I was interested in such a piece and the seller knew it was sold at the auction at over Rs 45,000 but was prepared to sell it to me, as I was a collector and not a dealer at 24,000. The guy's tone was that he would be obliging me selling it to me at well below, market prices. Well the fact, as I read it, was that he was selling me a coin which was worth Rs 12,000 to 14,000 at Rs 24,000. Even if he had paid the auction house Rs 5000 as costs, he would still make an additional 5000. Not a bad deal........

Fake coin.  The seller is seasoned and uses duplicate name with only 4 feedback. Better ignore it. I cannot inform seller as he has cleared, it is token coin and not a legal tender. The purchasers have to take conscious decision.

This is common coin not even scarce and may be available with dealers.

No comments as to temple coin, black magic etc.
