Also a junk box find : this milled silver rupee. According to Krause (and to Craig's Coins of the World 1750-1850) it was minted for Murshidabad. It shows a frozen date (Shah Alam II's 19th regnal year). The edge milling is upright, so it can be dated in the period 1819-1832.



You just convinced me, Bart. Can I come to Leuven with you next time? (I can recommend it to all and sunder, it is picturesque, yet very much alive - like any university city)

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
