please do a complete list.  there are more than 10 coins.  unfortunately i have forgotten about them.  it will be a great resource if you finish it.  i doubt anyone else has the resources to complete the list at this time.  the nehru coin series is fascinating and you are on the right track.

both of those coins had long list of die pairings used.  yes mint marks were part of the list of 10.  you should just make one list of nehru coins both for 5 rs and 1 rupee for posterity

Thanx Ashish. I was not aware about the RIM variety in Re.1 coin and if you are able to complete the list of varieties for the Nehru coins as suggested by Oracle then it would be a great learning for all of us........Kudos !!!

Difference between 1st and 2nd coin can be identified more easily due to size of 5 numerical. Difference between 3rd and 4th coin can be identified more easily due to long and short teeth at border. To me all lions appear same except 2nd coin wherein lion is short and fat.
Total 10 verities are possible in both 1 and 5 rupees coins.
Well find and presented.

Can someone upload a normal pic of the second coin listed here? Perhaps with the chest hair of the central lion more clear?
