Medieval coins, I first thought Mohenjodaro or Harrappa. Haven't a clue. Need your help to figure out. Best, PRA

Please post images og one coin at a time so that the identified coins could go to the correct board. Please also post larger images.

The coin to the left (lower coin is correctly aligned) is a rupee or its fraction (depending on the weight) of Mewar (Udaipur). Can not see anything of the second one.

Mewar, Really! Could you point me to some site where I can see more of these. What I have seen so far of Mewar Chitrakkot Udaipur hand struck coins do not resemble anything like this one.

Amitji is spot on with the first. The other coin is a punchmark coin of Mauryan dynasty(probably Emperor Ashok)
