Quote from: asm on October 02, 2012, 10:28:31 AMHow do you define greatness w.r.t coins? Age / Weight / metal / rarity / importance? I am confused?Amit
Quote from: Figleaf on October 02, 2012, 10:41:15 AMAfter considerable anguish, as I have many preferred British Indian coins, I chose the 1/16th rupee KM 423, only to find out that the coin didn't photograph well. So here is its big brother, KM 424, 1/8th rupee. Still not showing its full glory, but much better.What I like about this coin is that the design is completely moghul in character, completely British in execution. It captures the elegance and good taste of India and adds machinery for a protective edge, a full rendition of the die, regular planchets and coins with the same design in several sizes (the 1/16th rupee is only 10 mm, but has the same level of detail), scaled without a hitch. This coin combines the best of two worlds and looks unfamiliar to both worlds as a consequence.Peter
