I attach my only example of a tanka, in rather poor condition.

Could anyone confirm my readings of Bairata, Ilahi 45, Ardibisht?

Thank you

Elegant specimens.

Out of curiosity apart from weight difference in comparison with normal dam , what is diameter of such double dams.

Does One can easily distinguish double dam visually without carrying digital weighing scale.

Another question any suitable coin holders available in market?
Cheers  ;D

There is a great variation in the Diameter of these dams. the dia can vary from about 25mm to 32mm. But accordingly, the thickness also varies - more thickness for lesser dia coins and vice versa. Please see this thread for more information:

Thanks  link give some idea on dimensions , it is clear that emphasis was given on weight only while  minting & issuing such heavy tanka/double dams.

Cheers ;D

Tankas are double the weight of dams.. So one can easily feel the difference. The dimensions vary but generally the flan is 4-5 mm larger than a good flan dam. You can easily feel a tanka
