Maratha Copper paisa - Chhatrapati Shahu
« on: January 08, 2013, 10:09:41 AM »

This is a copper paisa in the name of Chhatrapati Shahu. The known dates range from 1231 to 1234 and fall within the reign of Shahaji of Kolhapur (1821-1837). It is discovered that Raja Shahaji was also called Shahu from documents comprising articles  of agreement between 'Raja Shahoo Chhatrapatee Kurwurkur' (Raja of Kolhapur) and British Govt. Therefore it is quite possible that the following coins were issued in Kolhapur.

Weigh - 9.6 gms.
Dia - 17mm.
