Quote from: Rangnath on September 05, 2008, 11:15:20 PMAccording to my very special resource "Coins of the Sindhias", which I recommend to anyone with an interest in collecting coins from Gwalior State, Rupees of the Nawabs had a 5-petalled flower as the dominant mint mark. After 1772, this mark was replaced with the St. Thomas cross, which was in use until 1806, when the mint was closed. So, if my understanding is correct, then technically this coin is either a coin minted by Gwalior, or Broach under Sindhia nominal control or by Broach under British control. richie
