I love these beautiful beastly coppers !!! Thanks to WoC member and 'Copper King' Dr. Abhishek for helping me acquire this specimen and for providing the legend description.

See here for other 'heavy' coppers from Bairata mint.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

These monster weight coins are hard to find in the UK, I did obtain one from India a while ago but it's a rather poor example of Ahmadabad mint
