This is not a good specimen, but happens to be the only Indo-Danish coin in my collection.

Nice coin, Overlord!  It is better by far than any in my collection, as I have NONE! And having most of the date on the reverse is a definite plus.

Dear Overlord, It doesn't look like a X kas, but a IV kas.
A ten kas has a weight of c. 6.25 gm.
A four kas has a weight of c. 2.50 gm.

Thanks for correcting me Oesho! I have modified the first post to read 'IV KAS'.

That is an amazing collection Jan!
I looked into the standard catalog. You seem to missing very few!  Which one coin would you like to obtain?

Simply awesome. I have never seen so many Danish India coins together. What a super thread.
