A nice one, all those colonial Portuguese are recently sought for much more than before, especially in the high grades. Problem is with the Portuguese "domino" coat of arms, always worn out, so XF (or defined by 95% details) is very hard, it would be graded by NGC with AU-50 or 55. Indian tanga from '34 are especially hard breed regarding that.

Nice coin anyway!

I once had got a Portuguese Mozambique 20 Centavos (probably dated 1936) for 20 rupees in one of the coin shows at Mumbai...those were my early collecting days so I was thrilled when I saw its catalog value. :D

This is too, a nice coin! :)
